Fish fam, need help! I work for a boutique consulting firm which isn’t doing well & we’re having layoffs soon. I knew we weren’t doing great, but this came suddenly. I’m shocked but need to act quick: 1) What do I need to ask the HR and negotiate for in my 1 on 1? 2) Who’s hiring H1B holders right now (strategy and ops consulting experience)? Would appreciate referrals! 3) How can I maintain access to fishbowl (it’s currently tied to work email)? Thank you so much!!

Change your LinkedIn account to personal email, this app is tied to LI and hopefully your phone is not company provided that needs to be turned over (if it is try to save your current phone# by transferring to new provider/device) EY1 has provided good info for your search. Remember, sometimes it appears things are falling apart, when they are actually falling in place. Whatever comes out of this, embrace it. All the best!

1. Negotiate the duration until which you will be kept on active or inactive payroll. This determines the date from which your 60 day clock starts. 2. Candor.co tells who is hiring vs on a hiring freeze (I know it doesn’t answer the question on who is hiring H1 specifically). Perhaps others in our group can offer insights or be willing to refer. Also post in the “consultants” bowl, much bigger audience 3. Your access to fish won’t be revoked, I left EY over 6 months bowl, and continue being on it. You just won’t be able to change your title etc. until you’re at a new role. Wishing the best for you OP, hoping things improve!

Can I still continue to work for my current company A after another company B has applied for h1b transfer and it's already approved? Background- I received a very good counter offer after resigning from my current firm, and wondering if I can stay. Or is it mandatory to join the other firm once h1b transfer is approved.

Hi Folks - I wanted to understand..how is H1B 6 years duration counted? Is it strictly by the dates on the petition? In my petitions for example, first one was valid starting Oct 2017 and then I got an extension in 2020 till Feb 2023.. so that just equates to about 5 years and 4 months. So is my H1B only till Feb 2023 or it can extended to allow for the remaining period?
