I contribute 6% to 401k to get the match from EY. My H1b expires in 1.5 yrs and given the uncertainty I’m not sure if I will be able to stay in the US beyond that. Does contributing to IRA make sense?

If there is a termination of employment you can rollover your 401-K to a more flexible plan. But check with your plan provider. So, since you already got your money tied up, I would not leave the match that your employer is giving you

New/pivoting into HR! 👋 Currently working as a TA Coord with a little entry level work in HR Ops prior to this. Is there a SHRM link, reliable test, or method of shadowing the various parts of HR that will provide a sample of the work, thinking, and day to day experience of each group? I didn’t go to school for HR and therefore haven’t had the opportunity to sample HR Ops. vs. TA vs. Comp vs. Benefits vs. Payroll, etc. I know work experience is the best barometer, but what can supplement this?
