Idk if my H1B will ever get approved on time. I hate my current job. I can’t imagine living like this. Just registered for celpip, but feel like it’s too late anyways. After 9/30 I would have 60 days to leave and that’s just not enough. I don’t have anyone I can talk to. People don’t want to hear my shit. My parents are more fragile than I am I don’t want them to worry. I have no one and feel like an absolute failure. Idk what I’m doing with this life.
Looking for job change but my H1B is valid for next 6 months (can be extended though) and will need both: extension and transfer of sponsorship - has anyone faced similar situation? What options I hav

Hi everyone, I know many people get like a counter offer from existing company, can we risk to try getting a counter offer being on H1B VISA?

Would you buy a home now when you’re on H1B or wait till you get GC, which is anticipated to come out in 3-4 years? I am eyeing 650K house w 20% down, have 2.5 years left on H1B while currently waiting for PERM processing. Is it too risky to buy a house now?
Hi, first time posting here. My girlfriend had to move back to China after graduating to renew her citizenship and has to stay there for a while. With the covid situation, the only way I can go there is with a work visa. Does anyone have any reference to a company in Shanghai, preferably in international sales or business development? My Mandarin is not on a business level so the job would have to be mostly in English. Thank you so much!
UK Onsite Opportunity: Multiple people requesting for UK onsite. There are 3 ways. 1. Study a 1 year course in UK on student visa and get PSW permit for 2 years. Part time job will help cover food and accommodation cost. If you're married the spouse can work full time for 3 years. Safe way, around 15 lakhs investment. Can be paid in installments. Sure shot chance of staying for long once you get sponsored. Worst case you and your partner can make good money in UK for 3 years. Check comments.

My former PM actually told me he rolled off my team because I wouldn't reschedule my PTO. I had this PTO scheduled since June. Another person took 3 weeks of PTO and she was retained. Unethical?
