Damn. Was lucky enough to land an interview. The interview went numerous rounds, it was super positive, so then I decided I would be 100% honest about something I wasn’t good at, in hopes of being clear that I was ready to grow. Then I got ghosted, and I think it’s because of the said honesty. Feeling low and stupid for ever admitting a “fault” in an interview instead of just telling them that I’m perfect.

I needed some advise. This is my last attempt on H1-B lottery. I was planning on initiating my H1b lottery from an outside consultancy as well along with my current employer so that I have better chances. I wanted to check if that is legal and I can have multiple H1b filings from different employers? Thanks.

Which Texas biglaw firms are being flexible with WFH? I’m in Houston and my firm is not being flexible at all. I am trying to push back but the partners and management is getting incredibly pushy. I like my firm a lot but can’t do 5 days a week in the office. Anyone know of Houston firms offering flexibility?
US fish here. Considering applying for an MBA internationally (INSEAD, LBS, HEC) as a way to pivot to working in the EU. I don’t have a visa so would need sponsorship, does this seem like it would be a possible gateway to getting to work in Europe? Or should I just try to apply for jobs instead. 2 YOE in strategy consulting
Does switching service lines internally affect my h1b? For example going from tax to audit or consulting. Do I need a transfer, amendment, or something else? Will it set me back or cause complications in the normal timeline to green card?

Thoughts on Delta Reserve card? Great benefits (most MQMs and bonus miles, free lounge access) but $450 in fees. I called and they won’t waive or offer statement credit. Worth it?
