At the start of year I was laid off from IBM ..they gave me the option of 90 days notice or 5 month training and then try to apply to a different job within the firm. But that training meant half pay and part time work. IBM immigration outright rejected my request to go to the training saying part time is a violation coz lower pay doesn’t comply with the wage level anymore

Hi Guys, I am currently working as a Staff Accountant and I am looking for a job with H1B sponsorship. I have completed my CPA and looking for a job referral. I am open to both private and public.

It’s Friday and I got something for y’all to laugh at.

A HR (brand side) asked me illegal questions abt my immigration status a few months ago, I pushed back and ignored her. This person just contacted me again, and sent me an assignment (??), without my response to her email, she called me.

The conversation is in comment area.

Hello Everyone,
If anyone can help me with any suggestions, I received my H1B this year, but my paystubs have my home address which is not filed on my H1B application and I am planning to move to another company. Will H1B transfer process create any issue in respect with my paystubs address? Will filing an Amendment for adding my current location, solve the issue?
Thanks in advance!
