I have 2 years currently remaining on my H1B and don’t have I140 yet. Am planning to start applying to places, but I see a lot of posts about how companies are saying no to folks who have contd..

And even if they offer you a job they will terribly low ball you on salary and designation..I would suggest you get your i140 first..


..less time on their visa. This is scaring me because I really need to switch. Am miserable at my current workplace and want to switch. I have some interviews also lined up, but I read about companies saying no, even after extending a job offer initially. That is so strange. Which firms do you think will still consider extending me an offer and going through with it? Any insights, based on your (or someone you know) experience would be helpful. Thank You!

Sorry for u..but put your head down and get that I140.

OP - You got couple of options

1) assuming you have 2 years left out of 6 years of h1-b, I would suggest to hang in there unless you are on the verge of getting fired.. even if you find a job offer new employer won’t be able to get extension beyond 2 years as you don’t have approved LCA for perm. My understanding is to file an extension on i-140 you need to have approved perm LCA atleast 12 months prior to filing an extension. So if you move to new company you are running against the time as new company won’t start GC immediately unless the company desperately needs you

2) Opt for desi consulting, there are some legit desi consulting firms who will pickup your h1-b specially if you are in NYC, CHICAGO or BAY area

I had an interview last week. The interviewer asked me whether I was apply for other jobs as well & how it was going. After the interview I felt like I shouldn’t have disclosed so much information. I shared that I have been actively applying for other jobs but that I haven’t gotten many responses. And that in the meantime I’ve been focusing on developing myself (finished reading PMBOK, taking LinkedIn Learning PM course, etc). Should I have said this? Now they know I don’t have many options 🤦🏾‍♀️.


If I'm an SM up for promo, does Deloitte re-adjust me to an EB-1? I can't imagine PMDs dealing with this visa extension hassle every 3 years.


Hi Recruiters!
Often we hear of tweaking CV with the JD keywords and submitting a new one each time to ensure keywords match.
What about job titles. I often see people mention to reflect the keywords in the job title as well, how does that work?
E.g. HR manager applying for HRBP
As a Company HR Manager, the person is a strategic partner to all business functions. Whereas in large organizations, an HRBP manages an assigned Business function/s. Doing same tasks.
Should I be changing titles too?

I work as a TPM for a bank and my aim is to find myself in a product company( currently on a consultants payroll) . I have over 13 yrs of experience in IT and been working as TPM for the last 1.5 yrs. I tried to interview with Amazon 6 months back and failed in the loop. They say per my experience, I qualify for L6 but they felt I had not worked in large projects like they expected. I know for sure this is something about how I portray my experience. How do I get coached to showcase my skills?Amazon

I hope this post fits here... my son (who is exclusively breastfed) is allergic to cows milk protein, so I'm having to suddenly go from a high dairy diet to a no dairy diet.

Note it's not lactose intolerance, so I cant eat lactose free food. Thanks!

Looks like the firm “supporters” are inaccurately “reporting” posts that demonstrate a diversity of thought (i.e., share any perspective that is negative from theirs). Shame on you for doing that and stopping staff from sharing their perspectives in 3rd party open forum that is not officially affiliated with CV in any way. This bowl isn’t meant to be a place to toot your own horn, CV. It appears to give a voice to staff in a safe place. See posts for a few that have been recently reported.
