Hi floks,

I have around 7 years of experience of which -
Yoe - 4 yrs in FDD practice and 3 years in audit practice in big 4s. By qualification, I am CA and CPA.
I am looking to explore job opportunity in United States and want to understand the opportunities and how likely it is that I will get visa sponsorship from my current or any potential employer.

Any inputs or suggestions, will be appreciated. Thanks.

This question is better asked in an immigration bowl, but here are the typical options:
1. Transfer to US with your exiting employer - they’d be able to sponsor you a L visa and green card later. Uphill battle if you don’t have a good business case. Most firms would only let you do a rotation.
2. If you have a close family member who’s U.S. citizen / PR they may be able to sponsor you for a green card. Or if you are born outside of certain countries you can try the diversity lottery. Apply for US jobs directly after you have the right to work here
3. If you are Canadian or Mexican you can leverage TN visa.

These are the most common routes. Other options exists (eg. H1B1 for certain nationalities, leverage previous H1B status if you were on one in the last 6 years, EB1a / EB2 NIW petition if you are accomplished within your field). Regardless, US employers would want to make sure you have the right to work here (and if not, needs to be easy to resolve through readily available visa categories)

If you are Canadian, TN is the easiest. You just need an employer to sponser.

My firm has a collections budget (80% of your billable rate x 1850 hours) and an hourly budget that must be met in order to be eligible for a bonus. The firm cares very little about originations and will reward someone for making their collections over someone who brings in new work. I missed my collection budget due to some odd timing with a client, but originated more than all my peers so no bonus for me. I’ve been at this same mid level firm for 9 years and it’s all I know. Is this normal??
