How will the H1b process work for those getting seleted in round 2? I mean, October 1 is around the corner.
How flexible is Deloitte with the start date because of H1b processing time? I signed the offer mid-may for July 12 because it seemed realistic enough for premium H1b transfer. But the lawyers seem slower than what I was used to and July 12 does not seem likely. Is this going to be a problem?
If you get laid off as green card holder, do you have to go back to your home country? Can I take contract jobs while searching for full time?
Seeking immigration / travel advise. I know we are not lawyers but any experiences / stories would be helpful. Can I enter the US when I have H1B change of employer petition approved but employed with my current company and serving notice period? Which company’s I-797 form do I show immigration? Do I tell them about switching jobs, etc.? My new company lawyers are not providing clear guidance on this and suggesting against travel due to COVID in general. Thank you.
Since big 4s file large number of application for H1B. i want to understand what happens for those whose name is not shortlisted in H1B lottery. Do they have to leave big 4 and return back to their country?
I am on H1B and my stamp doesn’t expire until September 2021, but visa is valid until 2023. Can I leave the US yet for vacation (Mexico), and have no trouble returning?
TLDR: First time H1B RFE =purely a wait game? got RFE last Monday, wrote to lawyer last and this Monday but haven’t heard back. Should I just sit and wait? How long does it typically take for people to hear back RFE results? I have friends who waited for 4+ months last year but also saw cases of a few weeks in this bowl. Confused and lost.
Hi There! While on H1B, can one go on an unpaid LOA while staying in the United States ?
Quick question. If you have an approved I-140, and want to switch jobs, does the new employer need to restart the green card application for you? How does this work? Thank you!
I got my h1b extension approved recently, however my wife's h4 is still in progress. Can I switch employers while her h4 is pending?
Is it true that H1B folks in Consulting are undergoing higher scrutiny and ending up with more rejections as compared to product companies?
I am on H1b and my daughter is American Citizen (Minor) . Is she eligible for stimulus package ?
Why do non tech employers use every excuse to not get you in the h1b lottery and then every excuse to not file your green card? Is it really just so you have to work for them longer?
Are those of us on H1b/F1 allowed to enroll in community College for any courses? The one near me has a motorcycle training course that waives the skills test for 1/3rd the price of its competitors
Does anybody know how does a global mobility project affect your H1B? Does the clock pause while you’re in another country? Do you lose the H1B status? Just curious!
I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
Anyone had a COS petition approved this year? Specifically from F1 to H1b. Just wondering how long is the processing time? Mine has been pending for six months now, although my H1b is approved and Im just applying to change my status internally.
If I cannot get a referral due to not enough YOE, would it be still feasible to apply without it??
🌞🏈🍗 Why is living in the Deep South (ATL, CLT, RDU, BNA, BHM, MEM) so much better than living anywhere else?
I recently worked with a recruiter from Robert Half for a position they contacted me about but I ended up not getting an offer. Recruiter mentioned that if I am interested in other job listings they can help me get more information, etc. My question for you all, what are the pros/cons of getting them involved with getting more info about listings I see? The experience I had with RH was mostly positive. I think the negatives were with the company and not RH.

Any advice for a law student interested in matrimonial/family law? Most of the people I go to school with are interested in big law and I’m starting to lean away from family law because of the large availability of jobs in corporate/commercial litigation.. especially with the appealing big law salary. My concern is if I should abandon my goals in the niche field of family law and focus in on my litigation goals from a commercial litigation approach. Any advice is appreciated!
What's the best industry to work in with this remote work environment? I feel like travel made Consulting worth it, now I'm not sure to think.
WFH today under “Business Resiliency Test” imposed by the client, and one of the client team members has been pinging me every half an hour to make sure I am actually there.
