Fellow visa holders, I'm hoping to start a new job in a couple of months, but I really really hate my existing job. How do you stay positive and force yourself to keep going with the visa uncertainty?

I felt it too. I took 10 days off, it really helped me through the period when the application was with uscis and I was awaiting the decision.

P1, I understand but I feel it's better to take it for my own mental wellbeing. Whatever I get is not from PTO isn't substantial enough considering next job was going to 50% higher salary.

I am with you. I am in transfer process and this feeling dragging me so behind

Oh man, I felt this in my bones. Same boat.

Remember, Bird in hand is worth 2 in the Bush. The next job u r aiming for May or may not turn out. Look at Ur current job as means to pay ur bills and stay financially healthy until u actually make the move.

I am in the same boat too. Am feeling less motivated with each day. However, I break my day into tasks that need to be accomplished. It also helps that i like the people that i currently work with so I do my best to get things going before i leave.

I hate my job with a passion too and half of my team already left. The only reason I stay is because my green card application lol

Seeking immigration / travel advise. I know we are not lawyers but any experiences / stories would be helpful.

How flexible is Deloitte with the start date because of H1b processing time? I signed the offer mid-may for July 12 because it seemed realistic enough for premium H1b transfer. But the lawyers seem slower than what I was used to and July 12 does not seem likely. Is this going to be a problem?

Maybe this is unfashionable... but I'm feeling ok around Trump and his Economic Immigration ideas. For real Consulting anyway - it just means closer scrutiny (which we shouldn't be afraid of) (cont)
