Any news about H1B extensions? Been hearing some rejections for consulting employees like us due to client sow end dates. Is it true?
Any denials on h1b extensions these days ?
Hi peeps my stem opt is expiring on 6/30/2021. If I am in the cap waitlist can I still continue working till my h1b is rejected? Thanks in advance 😊
I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!
How come some of the H1B applications are processed quickly (in a day or two) whereas others are still in queue for 12 days on premium processing? Don’t they follow sequence number?
Got an intracompany transfer offer for US and Australia - where should I head? Longterm goal: live in the US and work in tech (esp. Google). US offer: L1B visa, not transferable to other companies. Greencard uncertain. TC n/a but probably 🥜 Australia: work visa transferable, Sydney or Melbourne. Work in AU, switch to Google -> relocate to US. TC probably 🥜 too
Trying to get my employment verification letter from my previous employer ( accenture India ) ? Unfortunately my manager moved to different firm. What will accenture do in this case ? Need the document for green card processing . Thanks !
Has anyone taken an unpaid leave on H1b without leaving the country? I am just really burnt out with work, kids and taking care of my wife who is recovering from a severe case of covid. Would love to not work for a month. She is on H4.
Is Accenture sponsoring H1B at M& SM levels? If so, how responsive is their legal team for H1B / GC related filings?
What will you do to celebrate your green card?
My h1b got approved this year in Consular processing and with all the uncertainty I am planning to change it to a COS instead. Anyone applied for a change to Change of Status from Consular processing. How much time does the process of changing to COS usually take? Potential RFE etc?
How do you go about looking for new opportunities/job? I have been working at Deloitte for 2 years since graduating college (Engineering degree on H1B) and I absolutely hate how non-stimulating my job is. I don’t think I have learned anything or picked up any skills except for bs’ing, so I don’t even know where to start looking for exit props as I feel like I’m not qualified for any job except this bs consulting. For people that have left, how did you go about the job search?
Going for h1b stamping (from f1 stem opt). Haven't been back since 2016 and want to make sure I'm ready for all questions. Since I'm at EY do I really need any kind of client letter? What documents should I carry and what questions should I be ready for?
If I quit my job while on H1B, can I apply for a new job in the US from my home country, and then have them submit a new H1B petition for consular processing? Is my H1B “spot” held, so to speak?
Has anyone completed I-9 recertification at D while waiting for h1b to get approved? Opt expires in July and H1B is pending so my cap gap takes me at least to end of September. How to get firm to extend authorization from July to Sept without hard copy of the receipt notice? (Lawyers only share final approval paperwork)
Any companies in NY hiring at the moment that sponsors H1B visa? I’n trying to find opportunities while waiting on internal transfer.
Sharing positive updates. Hope this can be motivational for others who are in the situation or planning for a move. H1B Transfer approved in 2wks. Normal processing, not premium Vermont serv center.
Such a pain to file LCA and amend H1B every time I travel somewhere for projects...sigh (working remotely sucks during this process)...
I work in London and my employer is asking us to accept a -15% salary reduction. Cost of living is so high and I am tempted not to accept, though I’m concerned with team/partner perception if I don’t
CISSP CPE question: Does anyone know if a Udemy AWS cloud practitioner certification course can be leveraged for Group A CPE credits on ISC2? Udemy provides a certificate with hour totals, but I didn’t know if ISC2 frowns upon these courses.
Let’s say you sell a 3yr long project in September. Do you put the 3yr project in the CRM or break it down? Breaking down is complicated, but full deal close ruins reporting. Firm can’t decide.
