If your goal is going back to your firm, sure. If not, tread carefully.

Yes, I did. I’m open to going back to Kearney if I don’t like my MBA internship, but they know that’s not my current game plan. They were supportive and excited for me.

^same reaction here. It makes the LOR much more authentic if they support you too.

I did, just to give them more background of what’s in my application so every component hopefully will connect

I am one one of those laid off from Deloitte on H1-b (stamped) visa. My question is, if I join a consultancy and initiate H1-b transfer with them, then in one month I find full time job outside. Can the consultancy stop me from joining the full time role? I have heard couple of instances where consultancies not releasing the i797 approval document. If the consultancy does not release my i797, can my transfer process with the full time job happen? Please help - I have 40 days left to find new job

Hello! Considering doing my emba in canada but not sure if it will be worth it. Ideally I do it now before I start a family and am mainly pursuing it because I’d like the option of going the exec route one day… although it’s quite a hefty price tag and I genuinely believe it’s not necessary in many industries to reach that level. Not interested in having my employer pay a portion because I would be chained there for many years. Would love to hear how others have thought through this.
