Legal question for internationals. Is it ok to work remotely as freelance from US agency without working visa? I will be in the US for vacations.
I am on my 3rd H1B company and joined recently. The current employer is someone whom I have worked for before. If I get a better offer in the upcoming months, I would take it. I am concerned that the current one wouldn’t give me a customized Employment Verification Letter. I would need to get it from a common company template. How important it is to have a customized EVL and signature of the manager?
For those of you who have both Chase (reserve/preferred) & Amex (platinum/gold/corporate) cards. Do you find it hard being in two different “points ecosystems”? Or is it not a big deal?
Anyone know which agency sponsors employment based green card? My currency company won’t sponsor until my h1b expires in 2-3 years, so i’m curious to see how other companies handle.
It appears, IRS took away tax credit for kids not having SSN (i.e. non US citizen/gc). H1B folks continue to be treated unfairly
Hello fishes, has anyone been to the US consulate in Tijuana or Matamoros in Mexico for H1b stamping? How was your experience?
Why is my credit score so bad? Just checked it and it's 702. 24 M. Have CSR and two other Chase cards, a couple other cards from my old bank I didn't close, and to my knowledge never missed a pmt
My current H-1B with PwC expires in July 2023. I also have an approved I-140 from over a year ago. Green card isn’t close since I’m an Indian citizen. I’m switching jobs and wanted to check if the H-1B transfer with my new company will give me a fresh new 3 years (up until Oct 2024) or up until the end date of my current H-1B (July 2023). Recruiter isn’t sure and is checking with their immigration firm. I haven’t found anything definitely online to validate their answer when I get one. Thanks!

I have received offer letter from Business Consulting, Finance team from EY US LLP.. I wanna know what are the chances of getting L1B visa approved?
I needed some advise. This is my last attempt on H1-B lottery. I was planning on initiating my H1b lottery from an outside consultancy as well along with my current employer so that I have better chances. I wanted to check if that is legal and I can have multiple H1b filings from different employers? Thanks.

Does anyone know if you can get your h1b stamped somewhere else? I just scheduled an appointment in my country but they won’t see me until June 2023 😢

How do you know when you have enough money? I got laid off in the spring, but don’t feel a pressing need to get a new job right away. Have 3 rental properties, all paid off, get about $3k/mth net from that, have about $200k in a 401k and another $200k in more-liquid investments. I spend less than $2k/mth and feel happy and comfortable. Not married and no kids... but would like that one day, so thinking of maybe saving some more money for that. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice?

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
