Looking to connect with someone on H1B visa who got an RFE last year relating to specialty occupation.
H1B grace period (60days) - does it mean I need to join a new job within 60days or a employer needs to file the petition within 60days. I am thinking I need to join the new job by 60days
Currently on my h1b visa which is expiring in 2021, but then it can be renewed/extended for another 3 years. When does company like Big 4 start the green card process?
Got my H1B approved. Stamping in Canada vs India. Pros and cons of both. How long does it take in both countries?
Hi! I just accepted an offer and they will begin my h1b transfer. When my current company receives a notification from uscis? My offer only stars in June so I don’t want to quit yet
I’m a first year litigation associate who wants to go into public interest in NYC. Does anyone know of any NYC based non profits that would sponsor a TN (or H-1B) visa? Feeling very trapped in corporate law and it’s making me miserable.
Anyone getting denials on H1B extensions? I just got done with 3 yrs on H1, have I-140 & still got deniedon extension. Idk if it’s the lawyers screwing up or if it’s just the current administration...
Does Accenture sponsor H1B for lateral hires? I have approved work visa and permanent residency process is in progress with current employer. So would need to transfer H1B to new employer.
If you take a week's break between two h1b jobs, will it affect my ability to avail the 60 day grace period if i m laid-off from new employer (the rule i think says you can use this period only once per approved petition). Can anyone confirm ?
My 6 year h1 cal reaches Feb 2021. I am planning to quit, as EY immigration team has become totally clueless. Do I have enough time to start perm process with a new employer?
I’m an American working at a large agency under a holding company. If I want to work in London, what will it take for an agency to sponsor me for a visa? Do I have a shot when I’m a mid level?
Fellow BCGers - I didn’t get H1 this time and have only more chance left. Does anyone know if BCG lets you continue working on F1 visa (via enrolling in another Masters program)...
Desi 🐠 on h1b, what’s the process for buying a house? I guess most lenders need you to be GC holder or a citizen, what other banks or lenders did you get your preapproval and then loan?
If a couple of years are left on my h1b (max 6 years limit), and I have an approved i-140, can I leave the country for couple of years and return back when its current? Given I have a valid job offer off course. Or is my h1b invalid after a couple of years? Thank you!
Had a fight with the bf today - I am here on work visa, have a hard time finding other jobs, last night in the midst of things I said something along the lines of if you had loved me you would have helped me (bf is a citizen) with my papers. Am I wrong to say that? (I feel I am a little but not sure how much) And how to salvage if so? He’s been very nice usually but hasn’t talked to me all day

I'm currently in IT strategy and would like to move in the M&A space. Will getting a CFA certification help in anyway?
With all the bad airline press, thought I'd share this nice story about a Southwest flight crew: http://en.newsner.com/now-we-pay-tribute-to-the-airline-that-did-everything-in-its-power-to-help-a-mother-in-need/about/news,family

What is the comp structure for principals in your firm? What's the typical base vs bonus ratio on TC?
Is it appropriate to ask to flex time off if I’ve been working “OT”/long hours for a project? I’m junior IHC & new to the job (though I interned at the company for 1.5 years before becoming IHC). The company has a relaxed culture and good work life balance. Example: my coworkers (non-attorney) will typically just announce that they’re flexing on x day because of x reason. When I started as In House Counsel, my original GC told me to pick my schedule, and was fine with my 8-4 choice (cont)
NYC fish! Need some advice. I recently got laid off at my firm but am thankfully making it to the final rounds of another great firm. The only catch is that they're no longer hiring for the NYC office, only Philly and Princeton. Any thoughts or advice? The firm is tentatively staying remote until April but I think that could change given that cases are rising. Sincerely, a stressy depressy consultant
Anyone prepping for case interviews looking for a partner? Experienced profesh without a mba or ug network.

i have always wanted to pursue an MBA but I’m worried because i have undergrad debt that im still paying off. Are there scholarships for MBAs? Even top 10 ones? How do people afford it usually?
Our office has been optional WFH for about six weeks. Two partners with the best offices have not shown up a single time during this. Everyday I go into each of their offices to do an hour of work. Really banking on this thing lasting and me adversely possessing a corner office.
Is this a good bowl to ask about moving to the pharma client side? Analyst/consultant now, eyeing pharma comms roles.
If you've been laid off, how upfront are you about it in interviews? Better to let them know right away or further into the process?
Anyone who’s flown out of CLT recently know if dining is open? Have a 9 am flight so hoping to grab a coffee before hand :)
I haven't stayed at Marriott for a while but I just logged in and it looks like they think I'm Platinum. Last time I checked I was Gold (a year ago). Has this happened to anyone else?
