8 YOE total including 3.5 YOE post-MBA. Targeting tech companies but no traction despite referrals (not even getting interviews). I updated my resume multiple times to tailor to each job posting. Most of my work has been in one (non-tech) industry. I keep getting lowball (well below current comp) offers from industry recruiters. Any advice?
US immigration question. Green card interview date was cancelled in March 2020. It’s been a whole year of just waiting for a reschedule date, so the I-485 is transferable (e.g. to another state, another employer). Has anyone transferred their i-485 to another employer? What was that process like? Would my process start from the interview phase? How did you prove that the next job was in the same category? Please mention if you did the process before or during the pandemic. Thanks so much.

How you guys/girls calculating you workout/ rest days? I am on a weight loss journey, down 20 so far. The thing is I was running/walk combo 5 to 7 mile per day. I just started lifting some 10 pound weights, ankle weights and resistance bands to tone up. I also try to eat 1200 cals per day because my resting Basel metabolism is 1551.60. I’m female, 5’4 or 5’ 3 1/2 and I’m 34. I’m not sure if my BM rate is normal or low. I also notice that if I go 2 days + with out working my font thigh hurts
