If anyone has questions about getting their H1B stamped in India, please feel free to ask. I just went through the process and am happy to help as much as I can.

I’m currently on first year STEM OPT and actively interviewing to switch to a company where they’ll sponsor an H1B and/or green card. I would like to prepare myself with the uncertainties so I have a few questions: 1. How willing are companies to sponsor both visas for someone in the marketing team? 2. How long do you usually work for a company before requesting to file an app for H1B & green card? For reference, I currently have 2.5 YOE. Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi people,Does anyone have given visa hackerrank interview recently? May I know the kind of questions being asked and their level?

This two party system is so shit it promotes this you're with us or against us type bullshit you can have idealogies where you support different sides on different policies. It really does feel like picking lesser of two evils. Dems shit, Reps also shit. Why is it so black or white why can't it be a different shade of purple. When it comes to economics I like reps when it comes to immigration I support Dems but I can't have that so I have to pick one dog shit side or another dog shit side.

Confession- I’m on the h1-b visa with my current firm and they just gave me a 2 week pip. I’m actively interviewing with other companies now but if I can’t get an offer in the next 2 months I will have to leave the country..
