Question for the folks here that have recently gone through the visitor visa process for India: what am I missing?? I created the visa application form online and submitted it back in October for my dad and younger brother but is there a timeframe for when we hear back? The site is a cluster and I can’t figure out what I need to do in the meantime or do I just wait to hear back? Is there a step by step somewhere that someone can lead me to? Thank you and I owe you one!
I worked in assurance at Deloitte outside the US for 2 years. I then moved to the US and completed my masters in a year. Currently working at EY US but I was hoping to switch to Deloitte US if they will be willing to sponsor me on L1 visa. How likely will Deloitte sponsor and where do I start from? Any referrals? I have 2.5 years of OPT (including STEM) left.
The current practice leadership mentioned I am not a high performer and will not sponsor green card application. Should I start to look for other jobs?

I applied for H1B in September but still haven’t received my EAD card. My 60 days are almost up. Is anyone in a similar situation or know how to handle it?
My H1B got approved last October and I haven't gotten my visa stamped. The I797 says that it will be valid till Oct 2022. Now, i am planning to go for my masters now and probably will come out of school by May 2023. Will have to reenter the H1 lottery? Or can i use this approved petition to get a stamping then?
I’m an attorney with a solo practice. I don’t normally handle immigration matters but I’ve always been interested in it.

What do you think would make a good niche field for a small practice? Thanks!!

How good is your firm at helping you to acquire new technical skills and business knowledge? I am at a big four, and there is 0 appropriate technical training. I have to pick up stuff on the go and honestly feel like an amateur, just pulling solutions out of my ass..I hate to look back and realize how I could’ve produced better quality work. Is MBB like that, as well? Also, most managers and higher are so abstracted from tech that I don’t even know a single good expert to ask for advice

It's funny that there have been so many Uber haters who relentlessly criticized the company for making taxi drivers go broke...yet I am not hearing any staunch WFH supporters worry about tens of thousands of facilities management and maintenance professionals whose jobs will all but disappear if people do not return to their offices.

This is a bit of an aside, but over the last year or two, I've noticed "career coaching" explode as a service and a field. But, like what is it? How is it different from therapy, and how should it be utilized? I'm intrigued, but don't know much about it.
