If i’m on third year of H1B but leave for school (for completely different field), can I use the existing H1B when I get a job after graduating from grad school? Or do I need to go through new h1b lottery?
If I claimed stimulus bills as a credit on my tax return, does that count as a public charge and affect future H1B or green card applications?

Currently I’m on H1B and a SA1b at PwC, EY is offering me SA3. At present, PwC just started my GC process and it’s been only 4-5 months in the initial Perm application. I’m not sure whether EY would start my GC process from Day1 if I join their organization. One of the recruiters from EY mentioned that they don’t start GC process unless I have 2 years left on H1B expiry. I have currently 4 more years left (1+3). Should I consider going to EY or stay in PwC? Open for thoughts to tackle this. TIA!PwC EY

Hello there! Presently on EB2 and of Indian nationality with Priority date in Aug 2016. Since I am a people manager and we have an office in Toronto, we were looking into getting a PR in Canada and having me work there for a year before coming back to the US on a L1A visa. Thus shortening my GC wait time. However with the recent EB3 retrogression, they are looking into possibly downgrading me to EB3 instead. Which route (L1A or EB3) would be quicker and dependable? How to convince them? Thanks!

Am I too old? Too old to chase a wild dream of living in a beach town? Too old to follow a hunch? Too old to sell everything and start over somewhere else? Some days I feel like I am. With parents in failing health and a grandpa that is lonely most of the time, I feel obligated to stay here. To keep living the life that “makes sense”. I’m 32 single, no kids, own my home, essentially have life by the tail. I live an hour from where I grew up. Feel like I don’t fit in with my friends anymore…
Received an offer to join Facebook as a data scientist. Given the litigation (that just ended) with the PERM issues, is it worth accepting the offer? In 5th year of H1B, approved PERM and i140 with current employer. Priority date in March 2020. Can anyone share any insight/advice?

I’m not the heaviest I’ve ever been - I’ve lost some weight due to stress - but I’m easily in the worst shape of my life. I go for walks but it’s just not enough to combat the sedentary wfh lifestyle. Any advice on how to make more of an effort to at least try to do better? I have no equipment other than a yoga mat and can’t afford a peloton or anything. But I went to the office to pick some stuff up and took the stairs 3 floors up, and felt like I was going to die 😭 any advice appreciated!

Anyone have insight into Indexed Universal Life insurance as a tax free investment vehicle? My financial advisor is saying there is no downside risk and 5-7% return and tax free. Sounds either too good to be true, or is this how the wealthy avoid paying taxes??
