Does USCIS prohibit the individual from paying all expense related to GC filing like the h1b filing fees?
Has anyone in the US on H1B/L1 moved and not reported the new address to USCIS? How big of a deal is this? Should I be very concerned?
Hi Deloitte 🐟, does Deloitte do premium processing? I'm ready to pay the fees. Can anyone who went through this help? My H1B got picked recently but I need to travel to India for sisters marriage.
Need some advice - not happy at current job and looking to move from Consulting to FAANG. Have 2.5 years left on H1B and am still stuck at PERM step with current firm. good idea to try a move now and hope that my I140 comes through with new company before i max out?
My background check is taking forever and now they are asking me to provide my letter of separation for a job I held 7 years back. This is making me anxious since I am also in the process of H1B transfer - I just want them to tell me if I passed the check or not before I resign. - Anyone have an experience with a spotty background check and how fast/tedious it was. For ref for both my last jobs (in US) it was seamless.
I was wondering whether any US green card holders accepted into M7 programs ever get some amount of tuition reimbursement/funding/scholarships from these schools or are they treated like international students that are expected to pay full tuition. Also, how common does is it?
I just heard something about cross chargeability for the green card process. Did anyone use it? At what stage should you use it?

Anyone ever received a DHS Tentative Non- Confirmation for I9 e-verify? It's for a new job and I'm worried. I think its because I changed my immigration status from that when I entered. Context: Entered US 2015 on F1, worked briefly on OPT in 2017, then been on H1B since Oct 2017. Never left the country since entry. Filed AOS as dependent of greencard holder Jan 2021, did biometric June 2021 but EAD yet to arrive.
Hi, I am completely new to the Green Card process and was wondering if anyone here can help me understand the entire process (step by step till we get our I140)/suggest any website/video which explains the same thing? PwC has just collected my docs and I’m on H-1b at the moment.
Hi everyone, my situation: currently on 12 months OPT, expiring in Sep 2021, also have a stem extension for 2-years. Got picked in h1b lottery in the second round. I also got a new job offer this week. My question: Can my potential new employer file for h1b petition that was picked in lottery which was submitted by my current employer? If yes, is it a feasible option? What are my safe options in this case if I want to take the new job? Thank you for your guidance!

Was laid off in April and just got an offer for 25% more than i was making but for a role that I am not too excited about. Times are tough and i do need to get income. How bad is it to accept but continue with the rounds of interviews I started for roles I am more excited about?

Hi 🐠 two offers — would love to hear any insight: Offer 1: Walmart senior product manager: $200K base; $50k bonus, $40k stock vesting 4 years, $40k stock each year (vesting 4 years), $20k signing. TC YR1= $280k Offer 2: pre-ipo start up product manager, $145k base, $55k bonus, $40k shares, $15k signing. TC YR1=$225K. Work at startup is more interesting and greater WLB but not sure if the $$ makes it worth it. Thanks!
When reaching out to someone at an agency about working there (ignoring the application portal or if the job I want isn't actually listed) who should I contact? CD? ECD? CCO? I've only worked at small shops with one to two CDs, so I'm not sure what the etiquette is here. I assume that a CCO would have the final hiring sign-off, but are they too high up for this stage of the process? Help me Fishbowl, you're my only hope.
Next week I’m having my first lateral interview as a junior associate. I’m very nervous because the group with whom I’m interviewing works with life science/tech clients and the attorneys have strong science/tech backgrounds; and I do not. However, I am very, very interested in transitioning to this practice. And I reaaally want this job because it’s at my dream firm. How would you recommend preparing for the lateral interview?
I am not on an agile project, but I am learning more about it and very interested in how I can apply to my everyday work. Any easy ideas as to how to incorporate agile into my normal way of working?
