Genuinely looking for insights. Home grown consultant (SM3) and don’t see myself doing this forever. While a ton of exit opportunities exist, H1-B transfer seems to the biggest road block (approved I-140; not looking for other consulting options; open to FAANG and healthcare industry roles) Solid Openings / roles that are appropriate for my experience have stayed away from even taking the next step given the immigration situation. How have folks dealt with this? Any tips or advise?

I know at least 3 people in my network who got a FAANG exit while on H1-B. Usually that’s not a detriment for bigger companies

10 open Leadership Supervisor positions.
Almost 30 applicants.

I said that "People come to me about process issues, and I worked with others to better that process for them and the team."
Interviewer feedback denying me the role was that because I did not say "People trust me and came to me about process issues. Which led me to collaborate with others that I have networked with in the past to find solutions." I did not get the job.

Was this Code-Switching nitpick?
