I am on an h1b in city A and I found another job in a city B. In terms of providing documents to the new employer for the h1transfer, will it be a problem if I do not have an address in city B as yet? What are my options? I was thinking I would find an apartment while my transfer petition is being processed. Anyone that can relate to this?

You don't need the address in city B now. But when you start working, you need to be in that city.

I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼


Does anyone have an email template they like when making "cold call" introductions to other professionals/potential referral sources. I need to build a referral network with CPAs, financial planners, etc., and invite them to come to me with questions or send their referrals on over! Bonus points if you have more than one or one which is more easily customizable.

Other struggling to find work? I graduated law school in 2018 and have had such a tough time. I started out at a boutique firm, but was laid off in Oct 2019 due to a restructuring decision. After months of searching, I finally landed another position at a boutique firm only to get laid off again one month later due to the pandemic. I look for work daily and have had a handful of interviews, but nothing has stuck. It’s difficult to handle the rejection and I just don’t know what to do anymore...
