If you are laid off due to COVID and on h1-b visa, would you disclose to the new employer in the initial interview phone call itself about your exact situation i.e., laid off due to COVID and have only 60 days grace period left to file a h1-b transfer in order to continue stay in the US? Please provide suggestions.
Lol unsure what happens to these condescending Desi Managers when an American gives excuses for not meeting a target at work. Desi Managers (not all) can do only what they could and mostly on other Desis who are on Visa 😂
Has anyone gotten their h1b lottery receipt yet?
Just a reminder for no particular reason, having good health insurance, if you can afford it, is an expense not worth being stingy about. A freak accident happened to me (I’m young and was in good health) and the bills just rolled in. Insurance is paying 95k+ and my out of pocket max for the year is 5k. I’ll probably have another 90k incurred by end of the year and I’m not stressing because I have decent insurance.
Had a query regarding the onsite travel to uk.
My name on passport is different from the name in the company records/salary slip. Will it pose any issues to get Visa if I had to travel to onsite client location UK?
Thanks in advance.
Just got a new job. Can i ask them to file for an h1b petition this November? I didn't get the lottery first time, but can i try for this second time?
Cross-changeability question. For my fellow H1B holders, have you used cross-changeability to expedite I-485 filing? I have an approved I-140 and my newly wed hubby is born in a country that *continue
Possible to expense a portion of home internet because you use it for work (evenings, weekends, etc.)
I have been waiting to join Deloitte with H1B transfer. Received RFE early march and waiting for BAL to send response. It has been almost 2 months and getting really anxious.
Irrespective of the result of rfe, atleast the filing should be done. I have also not received any response on reminder emails sent last week. Is this very common ?,
feeling really anxious and confused.
Here we go..the H1B circus starts again!
Welcome back stressful weeks , emotional eating..it’s been a while 😢
Currently I’m on H1B and a SA1b at PwC, EY is offering me SA3. At present, PwC just started my GC process and it’s been only 4-5 months in the initial Perm application. I’m not sure whether EY would start my GC process from Day1 if I join their organization. One of the recruiters from EY mentioned that they don’t start GC process unless I have 2 years left on H1B expiry. I have currently 4 more years left (1+3). Should I consider going to EY or stay in PwC? Open for thoughts to tackle this. TIA!PwC EY
What's the worst expense horror stories you've heard? I've read enough about getting away w/ expensing stuff you shouldn't. But I am curious about the other outcomes.
Any Indian citizens here work abroad on a nomad visa? In Europe, Caribbean, etc. Were you employed on visa in the US or in India?
People on H1B - when did you give your notice to your current employer? Once the H1B transfer is approved? Will KPMG find out that my H1B is being transferred in the mean time? Ready to jump ship! Thx
Feeling sluggish as the day wore I decided to take a break and close off my mind by filling my expense report... What have I become?
I am planning to travel to Hungary on my schengen visa which I got from the Embassy of Spain.
My itinerary now doesn’t include Spain at all. Would that cause any troubles for me at the port of entry?
I have my retirement accounts with Vanguard. I found that Fidelity offers zero expense ratio index funds (FNILX, FZIPX, FZROX, FZILX). They look similar to VTI, VOO, etc. but don’t have any costs. What’s the catch?
What do you do with your Amex points when you leave? Transfer to new card or just use them?
Please suggest some good credit card options which is rewarding. Monthly usage of $1.5k- $2k in grocery, Amazon and restro. Thanks in advance!
Which TV ads you hate with a passion? I hate this new trend of using squishy sounding voices overusing words like “good”, “kind”, “fair” to peddle over prices crap. Eg :Cheerios, pedigree, etc. 😬

Any tips or helpful advice for adjusting to life with a newborn? Baby has been home for a week (after a 2.5 week nicu stay) and using the same feeding routine as nicu but still feels overwhelming. I feel like I’m constantly washing/sterilizing bottles and pump parts nonstop between feeds. Any advice to keep my sanity? :)
Also, any tips on dealing with post partum emotions? Everyday feels so different/emotional roller coaster

As an associate can you tell managers or SM to review your EGAS? Can you tell seniors to finish their EGAS? I’m afraid we are falling behind on this audit...
Real-time air traffic at and around the 3 major airports in the NY/NJ area as of ~1pm et- you can count the planes. Pls help me understand why the airlines (and boeing) stocks spiked in last few days!

Post-MBA consultants: do you include your MBA internship on your resume? I did mine at a different firm than I joined full time and am considering just including that experience under my current firm rather than listing out the internship separately. We’re only talking about 1 bullet point that I would actually keep. Would love to know peoples thoughts, especially since many places don’t count internships towards YOE anyway.
LA 🐠—somewhat stupid question. Any safety concerns walking from the Doubletree to 7th/Figueroa, taking 2nd St, at around 8:30 AM? Never stayed over here, usually at LA Live. Thanks!
