No idea but practicing behavioral Qs can’t hurt. If they start to give you a case (unlikely), I would ask to reschedule so you have more time to practice.

Op do you need some fit interview prep

funny

Yes I am ideally looking for some help on prepping

I would start prepping on the PEI regardless. A) There is no good way to say ‘uh I haven’t been told to prep for this’. Yeah it’s true but you won’t come out ahead. Different for cases, because you can say ‘need to exercise’, but difficult for PEI - what, you just don’t have any good stories to tell? B) You’ll need it in most/some of the following rounds, so risk of lost time is not that large.

who are you meeting with? a consultant or another recruiter?

As an update, it ended up being a 30 minute PEI interview style questioning everything you did internally with your team and externally with the client

Is it for an EM position aligned to a certain practice? Not a good job in the recruiters part to describe what would be expected

Just to clarify further the recruiter said there would be no PEI or cases. It is an informal chat for the fit interview. The position is for a generalist EM position in the US

It could definitely be that the HR representative may not be explaining the process to me correctly. She mentioned after this its straight to PEI + Cases which I thought was the second round

It is another recruiter. I figured it’ll just be more fit questions so just practicing those and prepping PEI

For those filed AOS, given the current processing timeline of 131 is much faster than that of 765, can I reasonably expect that I’ll get my Advanced Parole first before the EAD? Or do the two come together as the “combo” card , which means no matter how fast 131 (AP) is, the timeline of 765 is the one dictates when the combo card will arrive? I filed AOS last Oct and based on the processing timeline, it looks like AP should be done or soon, but not EAD. Thanks all!
