Background - Got my H1B approved (Consular) this Aug. Am already on OPT with 2 year STEM extension. I recently cleared the cut off for Canada PR. Does it make sense to go ahead and secure the PR? (How trustworthy is US going to be for already approved H1B?) Long term goal - back to home country in 5 years (hopefully)

Absolutely hate consulting and been at it for 8 years. Decided to stay for various reasons - immigration, lack of good offers etc. But so glad that I didn’t take up any of those marginally better offers that were trying to shortchange me. Finally exiting to a opportunity that I always dreamt of. Takeaway: focus on what you really want and keep trying
Spent a year in banking at an EB but had to go back to school because of H1B visa issues. About to start as a BA at McK in the fall. Any thoughts on my ability to recruit for summer 2022 PE Assoc roles? Or do I have to spend minimum 2 years in consulting before making the switch?
Anyone had issues with H1b stamping due to working in different states from the firm, if so what’s the contingency to avoid it. Planning to get mine stamped in Dec’ 18. Got approved June’17

Lately, for some reason, I feel like I’ve really hit a wall. I feel no motivation to do anything and constantly procrastinate until the last minute to work on an assignment.

Has anyone experienced this before, and how did you get out of this cycle?
