I have a “change of status” application awaiting endorsement at the State Department. It’s been pending for over 5 weeks now for what should ordinarily take no more than 2 weeks max. I understand there are COVID-19 induced backlogs but my application is now time sensitive. Any tips or leads on who to contact there to alert them of the urgency? Thanks

I applied to work for my dream company as an EA and the interview process was going well. They loved me but did not think I was a good fit for the role I applied for. They did however think I would be a good fit for another role opening up in a few weeks. I expressed that I was open to the role but I have not heard back since. It has been about a month. Should I give up on my dream company or trust the process? I have reached out twice so far.

Did not get an offer from Morgan Lewis last week. I went to a seminar today where the partner I interviews was speaking (he is the main partner of the group and he has like a 5 person team).

Not sure how I feel about the situation haha
