As a Desi born here, I would like to apologize on behalf of the USA for all the unnecessary stress and drama this admin is causing re: GC/H1B etc. You all don't deserve this. It's ridiculous bullshit.
Do you guys think the green card bill will get approved in senate today which will give Indians faster green cards?
Assuming I have completed the PERM process with Company A and 180 days have passed after i140 approval. Can I keep shifting to other companies B, C etc. and use the original i140 approval to renew/extend my H1B based on this? Can I finally file PERM about 2 years before the PD becomes current? Is it possible to extend using original i140 even though I left CompanyA?
Deloitte Green Card initiation - Are 6 months an absolute requirement ? I’m almost 4 months in, can I request it now ?
Has anyone filed for change of status to H4 (from H1B) on their own without attorney? Attorneys are charging approx $1200 to do this. Wanted to check in case we can do this on our own and in case somebody has does this before, can you please list the steps. TIA! Also, please recommend any immigration attorney who could do it for less.
Folks at EY who've applied for GC recently. I joined EY in June, so about 6 months in. I understand there is a 1 year wait on H1B before starting GC process. But have there been cases when this has started faster for new hires? I'm thinking of requesting in the new year by first talking to practice lead. Added incentive is SO is in her third try in 2021 and in case doesn't get picked, would want to keep the H4-EAD option open as soon as possible.
Hi Folks, Anybody recently went through the H1B transfer process? How much time does it take starting from the lawyer reaching out to you and then you receiving the approval.
I just got an email from the law firm with approval!! First time H1b, RFE response received on 09/06. Literally, the last day of cap-gap!! Hope everyone else on cap-gap hears back soon too! 🤞
Is it okay to go two months without income while on H1B - One Month of LOA and one Month of transitioning to a new location for a new job?
Has any of you started your MBA post I-140 approval? Any thoughts on how does that work for H1B employees in their 3rd year.
Has anyone on Temporary visa (H1B, DACA etc.) Applied for Global Entry? Recently got a job that may require lots of travel within the US and global entry which includes TSA pre check would go a long way. I am on DACA. Been in the US since I was 5 years ago. Any pointers would be helpful. Can't seem to find anything useful online as I cannot travel to India being on DACA
Signed a new job offer and law firm is preparing the case for H1B transfer. I am currently on 3rd year of H1B. Will I be affected by this new presidential proclamation extending visa ban?
Anyone from big4 has experience in having its H1b transfer filed within a week after accepting the offer?
May need to go to India for family reasons, but h1b is not stamped. Does anyone know if consulates are open for H1B stamping?
Hi everyone, Deloitte immigration office paused all the Green card application, any thoughts on this? Is there possible we can file by own lawyer and only request Deloitte submit material? Overall, I’m 2nd year h1b, want to start the process ASAP.
Unable to apply for H1b in 2019. F1 OPT expires on 01/31/20. 04/01/20 is exactly 61 days after. 1) If my employer files H1b on 04/01/20, can I remain in the US from 01/31/20 to 04/01/20?
Left the country without advanced parole while i485 pending and re-entered as a visitor (i know dumb). Got an green card interview next week. Is it a 100% denial? Or any chance uscis didnt notice.
Just got my green card! What are some perks I now have? Help me make the most of it. (TSA Pre Check, etc?)
H1B immigration question of a consultant wanting to move away from consulting- How bad are the risks of switching firms on a h1b than on a i140? My i140 process is taking forever!
Guys, has any one ever had to leave the US because they did not receive their H1b receipt notice before their EAD expiration date? Or were you able to present a different document to your school DSO as proof of being selected and in the process of waiting for H1b approval?
Any tips for Deloitte Superday interview for Business Transformation Group? Especially the case interviews? Thank You!
What’s the price of a Goyard St. Louis PM tote in the US nowadays? Saw on a couple blogs that they’re $1200 but I also see them listed for much more than that on resale so wasn’t sure if that was accurate info. I have a store nearby but haven’t been to check bc of covid, and they are so secretive about their goods online!
How hard is it to switch from accounting/tax to date analytics? Do I need a masters degree in data science to make the switch within big 4?
Been furloughed for a month. Sucks, but silver-lining is that I'm building a game with my girlfriend. If you're furloughed / laid off, what're you doing w your newfound free time?
I am SO tired of hearing “you’re on mute”. How have people not figured out how to effectively use zoom/teams/etc yet. 🤦♀️😭
Advice for re-entering the workforce after a 3 year gap? I had some health issues that made me leave my career in 2018, and by the time I was healthy enough to work again, covid started and I was unable to get any interviews. I haven't been able to find the motivation to cold apply for jobs again because I'm not quite ready to go through all the rejection like I did last time. How do I get over this? And how do I edit my resume to explain the gap?
I'm an SA, but so nervous about getting promoted to Consultant. Not sure I have enough experience to engage or lead client engagements or simply successfully complete any tasks. How (con't)....

Was passed over for a promotion and a friend said ‘well, everything happens for a reason’. Do you believe everything happens for a reason, or are you smart?
Currently have a good WLB with 30-40 hr weeks. Have an MBB interview scheduled. They’d probably give me only 20% bump as I’m already in top band. Is MBB worth the hype that I have to sacrifice my WLB?

Got engaged last week. Today’s the first introductory zoom call with both sets of in laws. Her parents only speak their local language and my parents don’t speak that. We have both spoken to each other’s parents separately and it’s great, but first time we will all be speaking together. Any advise how to navigate the call and pitfalls to avoid?
