Trying for opportunities in UK in the financial risk/ quant area. Currently working in the US for big4. However, I am not sure if companies in UK are willing to sponsor candidates in tier 2 / skilled visa category. Can you provide some insights? TIA
Graduated 2018 with STEM major/extension. 3 years working, and in 2 of those years USCIS ran 2 H1B lotteries. So 5 lotteries and I still didn’t get it. The chance of not getting it 5x in a row is ~25% chance ^ 5 = 0.097%. Insane. Also, I don’t know anyone who graduated earlier than 2018 and did not get it on the first three tries.
What is the executive order mainly expected to do - stop new visa applications or stop travel into the US for existing visa holders, or both?
Seems like H1B approvals for Consulting Industry have been low this year till now. Is it only with ATK or other companies as well?
Anyone from big4 has experience in having its H1b transfer filed within a week after accepting the offer?
Planning to visit India later this year, and also need to get my visa stamped (current stamp expired in 2016). I have an I-797 number from the approved extension, and another one from an amendment...
I got 2 offers and I initiated h1b transfer process with Employer B and Employer C. Employer B - approved (premium) Employer C - pending (regular) Started working with Employer B. What happens to C?
Here are mostly people who studied and then got H1B or came from India to US directly on H1B. My brother wants to do MS and confused if it is worth it to spend so much money given current situation
Can you apply for a green card to work in the US to sponsor yourself without an employer sponsored work visa (TN or otherwise)?
How much time does it take to get your h1b extended? My h1b (first 3 years) expires in Sep 2021. I am thinking of switching job in Jan/Feb and Wondering if that would give me enough time to get H1B extended through the new employer.
On H1b. Planning to quit in September and then attend a friends wedding and leave the states within 60 days. Can’t take this job anymore and not really sure if it’s even worth it. Any tips or thoughts?
Just got my H1B extension approved. If I decide to switch firm, can I go abroad (where h1b stamping is open) to get my visa stamped between the time I quit my current firm and join a new employer? Or do I need to be employed at the time of visa stamping? Are there any risks in doing this?
For US visa appointments in Canada - can I schedule an appointment in a location different than that of my DS 160? Does anyone have a recent experience with the Calgary consulate for L1B Blanket?
Need immigration law assistance. I have a client with a Portuguese passport who's based in India atm, looking to live and work in the US, with an educational background of law and 5YOE as a lawyer.

How does a person not get tired of public accounting always wanting more, more, more? Can’t even take a day of vacation and feel good about it. It’s a double edged sword for me because I’m very driven and career focused but damn this is always killing my vibe.

I hope the Green Choice points won't be worth only 500 a night in the future devalued state of Marriott / SPG. 500 SPG points are worth it but 500 Marriott points is nothing.
Any tips for getting interviews/job offers? I don’t have too many people in my network but I’m trying to switch to another big 4 in tech. Ideally I would like to switch into consulting but I feel like that’s harder, especially right now. I’ve been applying to jobs on LinkedIn but not hearing back and I need to get out of here😭
My wife makes 112k and I make 70k in NYC. She plans to go to law school in 18 months. She is very smart and so I believe she will get a scholarship. But assuming worst case scenario, we will take on debt to pay tuition (180k). My question is should we still fund our Roth 401k this year as we have in the past or stop funding it to save for Law school to decrease student loans? I believe post law school she will make 200k (big law) and I should be at around 100k.
How do you make consulting manageable in terms of WLB? I enjoy what I do at work but I also have interests outside of work. Would an exit be me only option?

Question: can an employer legally withhold your personal possessions after you leave the firm? I left my old firm recently and they were not happy about me joining another consultancy. They are withholding any belongings that I left in the office and have ignored my emails asking to arrange a pick up or delivery of my personal items. I understand the covid19 environment impacts the situation, but anything I can do to get my stuff back? Any help would be appreciated.
Should I boomerang 🪃 back to Deloitte for high comp and to get into tech strategy? Currently have an opportunity at another firm. Would there also be a separate process if I go back?
