Yes

Please add citizenship

19 years from the time I first landed in the US as a student. No prizes for guessing my country of birth.

K. I'm going to Canada.

Just go to Canada and study a two year program, get a work and file for Permanent Residency

I am in a bind right now. My priority date is December 2013 EB2 India. Considering final action dates for EB3 in October my date was current. Hence I am in process of filing a EB3 downgrade and AOS. However the November visa bulletin has retrograde the dates to Jan 2012 for EB3. Many are saying EB2 will move ahead than EB3 eventually. With this background should I just cancel the downgrade plan or at least get the EAD and AP while at it? I have my EB2 I-140 approved.

Can you only apply to the Google APMM program if there is a position available at your home country’s office? Or can you apply anywhere? It says there is no visa sponsorship so I assume it’s the former but wanted to check. The program looks great. Fits my credentials and long-term goals. However, I’ve never seen an opening for the position at my home country’s office. Any APMM program members who faced the same issue? How did you overcome this? Happy to chat here or over DM.Google

We have ~$400k HHI. Monthly expenses are ~$6k (1 child). We live in Austin. We’re seriously considering getting a 900k to 1M house which we wouldn’t be considering if the market in Austin wasn’t so crazy but we’re really big on proximity to culture/resources and need to stay in the area (can’t move to Houston, Dallas, San Antonio , etc.). We also just honestly feel like the suburbs out here are so very bland. Thoughts on us doing this? Are we crazy? Is this understandable given where we live?

Hello fishies! Curious to know everyone’s experience with networking during a transition. When chatting with someone who is trying to pivot into a new role, do you find that they often withhold saying anything negative or potential conflicts/challenges about the team dynamic or role itself. Do you find yourself doing this? If so, why? It seems like only benefits the employer and keeps employees in a perpetual state of discomfort. Thanks
