Sounds like it varies! My referral started with an initial call with the HM, recruiter was actually second! Offer landed last week 🙏🏻

Did I need to get an H1B visa stamping if I’m in the US? I was on OPT and got my H1B while on it so ive been in the US since 2014, never left. It’s time to renew my H1B and the questionnaire is asking for my current visa info such as the visa number. I don’t have a visa stamp for my H1B because I was in the US. I do have one for my F1 that is obviously expired. I only have the I-747A for my H1B. Did I not get an H1B stamping when I needed to for 2+ years…?

Not comp related but a question on references: I’ve only had 2 direct managers, current one is nice but I can’t let him know I’m interviewing. Previous one was a bully and I made clear that I cut contact with him when I left (he later had to contact me for non-essential work related stuff but I declined to talk). I have other references I could use, but want to prep for situation when employers ask “why can’t we talk to your previous manager.” Thanks!
