I am currently in US on L1B Status which is expiring soon.
Please help 🙏 Has anyone done human/employee due diligence before? I’m thinking I’m going to approaching it where I do a mix of 1:1 and workshop style “interviews” to assess the quality and skills of people coming from a company to be acquired. How does one does this in practice? What types of questions should I be asking given I don’t have domain expertise in all these areas, and what does an final output/deliverable look like? It’s like 50 people.
Have some extra time so AMA:

Hi 🐠, It's been 2.5 years since l joined Deloitte and I want to move to a new job soon. I haven't started applying yet but will. I have a question. The green card process deadline is tomorrow and Im not sure if should initiate that or not. My H1B started last October so I still have time but I don't want to be stuck here for the entire duration of green card process. So my question is, after starting the process when can I move to a different firm? Will documentation resume in new firm?
