Does anyone knows if Deloitte can file H1B before the starting date? I got hired around October 2021 and official starting date might around summer/fall 2022. I am a F1 student who holds OPT for one year, period from Feb 18, 2022 to Feb 18,2023. So it seems I just got one chance for H1B lottery, which is March 2022. Before I reach out to HR, just wanna know if anyone has similar situation!

Does anyone have any experience with the United Chase Explorer card? Does the free checked bag apply to international flights (specifically to Europe)?

I’m assuming the card alone will not make you eligible for upgrades, does the united club card do this? The explorer card is pretty cheap annually, but is this even worth it?

Hi community, humbly seeking professional HR advice. I recently joined my company’s HR team.

This person is 20 years my senior. In the same conversation this person advocated for me on a separate matter & complimented my performance. I am not sure what course of action to take at this time. Distraught & unsure.

Hi everyone. Not sure this post falls into the right category but here it goes: I have been talking to two agencies who are interested in my work. One already made an offer. The other has not yet, but we are in a second round of interviews. My question: is it appropriate to bring the fact that I have already an offer from an agency 1 when talking to agency 2? I am very interested in the second agency but I’d like them to know that I can’t wait too long. Thoughts?
