Anyone on board the H1B 2023 train? How long does BAL take to update the status if picked?
Got this message from United airlines. Traveling with my daughter next week who is a US citizen on Indian visa (i am Indian on H1b). Will this be an issue?>>>.

Hi All :) I need advise on whether it is possible to get my first time H1B stamped at a US consulate in Canada ? I am required to travel to Canada anyway for my PR stamping and I am trying to figure out if I can get my H1B stamped around the same time while I am in Canada for my PR, since it is extremely difficult to get appointments in India these days? I am currently based in US. Thanks!
I tried to find the original WSJ report quoted but couldn't find it. Nevertheless this needs to be shared so that anyone planning on STEM OPT extension, H1B transfer, extension etc can expedite.

Hey, I'm a Senior Business Analyst recently moved to Australia with a Permanent Residency visa. Actively job searching but it's so exhausting & disappointing to keep applying to jobs without hearing back. Any tips on what I should do to boost my resume being noticed by recruiters and hiring managers? Also, if anyone here has an open position for a Senior BA in their org and can refer me, I'd be really grateful. TIA!
Any possibility to transfer H1B approval from Infosys to new company? It is not yet stamped
Those who recently joined Deloitte on h1b, how long people are getting h1b approval for? Is it 1 year or for 3 year?
Do they file h1b for specific client or generic role?
How should one apply for onsite jobs (preferably UK) ? Wherever I apply , I get rejected because I mark the field as YES for "I will need Visa sponsorship".
When is a H1B eligible to initiate H4 ? Also what's the suggested time (when) for such initiation? Please help
Has anyone tried to convert from H1B to F1 and then back to H1B? My Perm is not gonna happen before the expiration date so I am thinking about alternatives but GDP and Spouse are not likely options for me.

Honeymoon planning question! My fiancé and I both love wine and fine dining (we don’t indulge in fine dining often, but we certainly want to splurge during our honeymoon and visit a Michelin 3- Star or similar ). We’re also interested in exploring villages and want to meet locals and stay away from anything too touristy. For those of you who have been to both, would you pick France or Italy if you were in our shoes? We’ve never been to either country so I’m curious what people think.

Should I pay down my rental property mortgage early? The interest rate is 4.875% (don't tell me to refi, this is the best I can get). I have 17 years left, I am planning to FIRE in 9 years and live in this property (it's a duplex). I have $50k cash right now that I am DCA into the market. Should I just pay an extra $500/ month so balance paid off in 9 years or should I put $50k against mortgage right now? I am a high earner and use the interest deduction etc. To show a paper loss.

Seniors/Leads - I'm building out a strategy roadmap for our designers for 22/23. My first as the lead of a team of developers and designers. Any tips or words of wisdom? So far:
- Increase design influence in our products
- Align design/dev version control methodologies
- Optimise/innovate our design tool usage
- Increase core product application knowledge
Of course, without company context it'll be challenging but appreciate any general thoughts.

Any business development advice for a minority female partner-level transactional lawyer? I have strong resume, incredible deal sheet, worked at the best firms. Existing firm clients say I'm the best counsel they ever had. But developing new clients (my own clients) is a hurdle. Seems like potential clients (mostly all white men) won't give me a chance at a deal. If they'd send me just one deal, I could win them over, but can't get my foot in the door. Advice?
When clients delay fixed fee engagements by a month or more and you've already started significant work, do you increase total fees? What reasons would you use to demonstrate why the fees increase?
I was honored as a distinguished alumni from a specific program from College- I decided to not take any guests, including husband and kids, or parents and siblings. Felt a little guilty...
Consultants mixing with one another? Breeding? Creating an even lonelier generation? You're not allowing natural selection do its work. You're like the guy who invented the seat belt.
