Fellow 🐠, recently laid off while on H1B. Married my partner who is a US Citizen. As I understand it, I have a 60 day grace period from date of termination to apply for new jobs and begin visa transfer through employer. However, going to begin AoS for marriage based GC. Do I still have to worry about the 60 day grace period? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
If you get a RFE and the lawyers are responding to it but you have only one month left on visa(before extension) do you have to leave the country ? Will you be rehired or you lose the Job for good?
Have you heard about 'immunity visa'?
I got placed under a new manager. He sent me a message on slack “what’s your visa status?” I’m a citizen and was so confused why he came at me with this question
L1 question: if you max out L1B, can you work abroad for one year (same company) and then apply for a new L1 to come back? Or is this a once in a lifetime visa? Asking for someone I know in this situation that is getting conflicting responses from her legal team.
Hi! I am on L1 visa and applied for i-131/765/485 early in the year as a dependent. Can I stay in the U.S. lawfully if I quit my job and lose L1 status before the approval of EAD/GC given I have a pending change of status application? I will soon talk to an immigration lawyer, just wondering if anyone has heard a similar case before.
OPT folks. I have two years of experience and 10 months OPT left. Would companies be willing to consider me with 10 months OPT and having to sponsor me H visa in April?
Went home to get my H1B visa stamped and was sent to Administrative Processing... Happy Holidays present from the US Department of State. The uncertainty around this process has been exhausting
Chase the money or chase the work?
Old acquaintance has asked me for a letter to USICS to confirm that I found her a helpful and engaging mentor many years ago; she has applied for an O-1 visa to the US and says her lawyer has advised her to collect letters from various people to reject embassy’s claim that she falsified the truth on her application. I’m a bit unclear on the visa process and needs, and also a bit wary of someone who got in touch after 10 years, and who did not reciprocate earlier. Is this how it’s done now ?
Any options for B1 / B2 visa holding parents to come to USA now? Have heard about safety issues while traveling through Mexico, so trying to figure out if any other countries allow it
But really, how can you neglect to notice 1.5 million deposit accounts and a half-million credit card fraudulent and unauthorized accounts. Where's KPMG's fault lie in all this?
What is the best credit card to get with no annual fee? Most of my expenses are dining related
Did anyone apply for Schengen visa (Germany consulate) recently ? Online application form is keep freezing for me.
In the US on a visa and so worried about losing my job. It’s all I can think about. It’s hard to even get a new visa at this stage. Couldn’t easily go back to my country (got obligations here). ☹️
It seems as if people of color and on work visa are being targeted for layoffs. Does anyone feel the same?
Does anyone have experience with getting a visa stamped in Canada or Mexico? It takes a few weeks to get it in my home country and I’m wondering if it would be easier/faster to get it done somewhere else.
EYers who got the Greencard (EB-2) via PERM: 1) is/can EY file i-140 & i-485 in parallel with a valid visa? 2) can you pay out of pocket for i-140 premium processing? If so, did you benefit from it if i-485 still takes 6m on average (I would only see a benefit if EY refuses parallel filing of i-140/485 Asking because of delays/backlog at DOL & I only have a valid visa until end of 2022 (max date).
Can a worker under f1 visa get the stimulus?
How am I doing ? 54 interviews but still no offer. On a visa and have been actively searching for 2 months. Holding strong.

Hi Guys. Need help evaluating two offers: 1. McKinsey - Associate in Risk Consulting - $165K base/30K sign-on. NYC/Chicago. 2. Facebook - Program Manager in Security and Privacy - $160K base/$100K RSUs over 4 years/$20K sign-on. Bay Area I have 6 YOE at Deloitte in Cyber since graduating college. Has always been a desire to work at McK but don’t plan to stay in Consulting long term. Was all set to join McK until this offer came along. Any advice on what factors I need to consider?
(Serious) what do the peasants boarding for coach think when they have to walk by 23 year old consultants in first?
McKinsey and Bain 🐠, do you feel like your firm values you? I really like consulting, but I’m considering a switch since BCG’s culture is somewhat toxic.
Living in DC making 73k and still feel strapped. Don't understand how ppl make it with less around here. All you boasting about your 100k net worth at 22y.o are full of bs or trust fund babies
Jokes! What kinds of bagels fly?
Partner came up to my cubicle today while my back was turned. Shouted my name which startled me. I audibly farted as a result - he then turned and walked away. Thanks Tuesday... 🍑💨👍🏻💁🏻
76 degrees in Jersey today. Client can’t shut the heat off. Client network is completely down. Client says to just leave since we can’t get anything done anyway. It’s a Wednesday miracle, ya’ll!!!
Heard at airport bar from man on cell "just tell me baby you won't have to dance anymore I don't want you doing that shit". Am I in a movie? 😂😂😂
Consulting phrases you hate
Had a cringeworthy joke moment on Skype today (lots of crickets). I rarely tell jokes and probably won’t again 😑. Let’s hear the most cringeworthy things you’ve said during a Skype meeting.
Ok folks. I have a chance to marry a beautiful 32 year old woman. I'm a 40 year old with 2 kids. Have to get divorced first. Should I do it?
