Hi all. First year IB analyst here who is unsure of the next steps in my career. I eventually want to work my way to the food & bev industry and it seems like many of the post banking roles in the industry are at PE shops. I don’t know if PE is something I want to pursue. Any advice is appreciated!

Did I need to get an H1B visa stamping if I’m in the US? I was on OPT and got my H1B while on it so ive been in the US since 2014, never left. It’s time to renew my H1B and the questionnaire is asking for my current visa info such as the visa number. I don’t have a visa stamp for my H1B because I was in the US. I do have one for my F1 that is obviously expired. I only have the I-747A for my H1B. Did I not get an H1B stamping when I needed to for 2+ years…?
