Does anyone have advice for a SWE about moving to the US from India? I was wondering if it makes sense to get a job with Google/Microsoft here and then try to go to the states.

An internal transfer will be much easier to pull off than applying for a US-based role from outside of the US (assuming you don’t already have work authorization).

Agreed. The visa application for internal transfer is different though, and could still take 6+ months. If you lose your job you may have to return then come back if you get another visa to work for another employer

Hello desi 🐠,
I was laid off a while ago and my 60 day clock is running. This was my first job. I have very little experience dealing with this visa issues. What happens to my H1B if I get a 6-8 month contracting job? Does it get extended? Does the 60 day count go on,m or stop and reset?
Do I need to file for a new H1B or new visa type?
Help please.
Any guidance is appreciated! Thank you all in advance!

Career advice please. I'm in my 20's work for a company that just went public, I'll receive a few thousand in shares for my time there. I have good pto and insurance is paid for. There is room for growth, so no real stall in my career. However I have a job offer for a contract with a crypto company for double what I make. It's a year contract and I use the company's product on my own time all the time. I am also heavily invested in the crypto space, philosophically monetarily, and time wise.

Do PM’s also have ample opportunities to hop if desired? Not that I want to be a frequent hopper but it’s more about the breadth of possibilities. 2) I see ads of certifications for PM both from “bootcamp” style schools and traditional universities. Are these helpful or not really?

Hey folks, appreciate your insights on the following situation: I’ve received 2 offers from different companies. One is a direct competitor of my current employer (offer still in negotiation) , the other isn’t (offer already accepted). As I have a long notice period (4 months) I’ve already resigned and said that I’m joining a competitor as chances are high. They now have decided to send me on garden leave. What if I eventually decide to go for the non-competitor company? 😅
