Hi all - re EVLs - do these need to be signed by supervisors? Or can it be HR? I left EY a while ago and my counselor and PPED refuse to sign the EVL and claim only HR can sign those

PwC law team’s guidance to me was its preferred if it comes from HR and in company letter head but some firms do not issue EVLs. In that case you can get an affidavit from a ex-supervisor which you will have to notarize. Regardless the EVL from HR is preferred and fool proof


Thanks. I keep hearing from my lawyers that HR cannot sign the EVL as they have never been my supervisor. Any thoughts on this?

HRs don’t sign Yes. They give it on letter head.

My ex-supervisors told the same thing too.

Basically no one wants to send EVL with their finger prints on it. Just talk to your ex-colleagues friends and ask them to notarize EVL. Everyone does the same.

@pwc2 can I DM you too? Fellow P dubs fish here who is going through the same process and need EVLs.

I am looking into starting my own firm with one other attorney. I have never been a partner or solo so I am trying to figure out best practices right now. I would appreciate any advice on starting up, things to avoid, preferred software, which gods to pray to, etc. The goal is to be virtual and to primarily do PI with a small amount of business services (my current book is mostly business litigation/contacts/outside counsel work).

Thank you all in advance! This is pretty daunting.

I feel like I'm making a very basic error here, but I'm not sure what. I'm interested in opportunities with Google's Professional Services Organization (PSO). However, my applications to PSO, to date, always end with a standard reject email. I've tried applying three times. Don't plan on applying again anytime soon. But every time I've rewritten my resume to super closely match the requirements of the role. Is there something concrete PSO recruiters are looking for? I am 2xGCP certified.

Need advice:

I'm debating between a Deloitte USDC role as a Software Engineer for 100k + 5k bonus and a small but established private company for 110k, which is fully remote with no expectation that I have to move at some point. Health/Dental/Vision, 401k and PTO are pretty similar. I'm an experienced hire with ~5 years of relevant background and currently work on a small, independent team at a large aerospace company, so either job is going to be a bit different than what I know.


I am a consultant on human potential and success, but basically in stocks/binary trades this is mainly why I'm here making connections. Also I am open to find out is there anything we could support each other with.

Do you have any experience about binary/stocks trades before?

I have an approved I140 for audit position and I transferred from audit to advisory within the firm. Now my PD just became current. the firm attorney think I am still able to submit 485 application due to similar job duties and same OES code. I noticed the SOC code did change between my two H1b filings. I asked the attorney but they don’t think it matters as similar job duties and SOC codes are linked. Should I worry about it? I still work in the same entity and location, but title was changed.


My H1-B expires in April 2022. My spouse’s h4 (non ead) expires on April 1,2022 as well. The lawyers are filing my h1-b extension on premium processing next week.

I moved to a different city this Jan and Deloitte filed an amendment for the same. Received RFE and they responded. I am honestly concerned that it might get rejected, seeing how my RFE team usually handles stuff. In case my RFE gets rejected, should I immediately stop working from my current location and move to my previous location? I still have plenty of time on my h1b and I-94 is also valid till next year. I really need to be in my new location for personal reasons. What are my alternatives


My RFE was received on May 18th, but internal law firm did not do anything even after emailing them for the past 3 weeks. Anyone facing the same issues? What should I do?
