Hey folks. Any suggestions for an immigration lawyer in Chicago. Wish to do a consultation about the different possibilities on my visa status.
Can someone provide link for applying Canadian visitor visa. I am on H1b and need to travel for a weekend for a wedding. The process I found online required medical exam and so many other things. I heard earlier that getting a tourist visa is not that complex

Has anyone been denied H1B after receiving a RFE? I just received one and uscis basically wants to know how my job is related to my education.
Does it make a difference if my company applies for my L1 visa from India as compared to Canada? I am an Indian citizen
Got selected for H1B but already accepted offer at another company for 2x pay. Is staying at the company and getting the visa worth it? What are the risks for immediate transfer if the other company is willing to wait? Current visa expires in 2 years.
I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
Has anyone filed for H1B amendment and extension application together? Should I file together or file amendment separately from extension? Which is the better option ?
After receiving Green Card (employer sponsored), is there a minimum period that one needs to work with the sponsoring employer before switching? Asking from a legal/USICS’s point of view, not ethically.
Looking into leveraging my corporate Amex Green Card to get an extra $150 statement credit on a new Platinum Amex card for personal use. Any downside of using this offer? Also any thoughts on having the platinum card and keeping my existing chase sapphire reserve?
Would you say it’s become common to get a 221 (g) administrative processing during h1 b visa stamping interviews these days? Or, is this something that happens only occasionally?
I️ heard that Indian citizens with US visas can now get a 14 day visa to the UAE. Is this on arrival or do we have to make any arrangements before hand? Where can we extend it? Thanks!
hi all- I am on h1b currently from india. unable to find visa slots in the next few months. can I bring my fiancé to USA ( she has b1/b2) visa and get married over here .?
Peeps I have H1b till Sep 2021 but my passport expired in Sep 2020 and along with it my I94. I had already renewed my passport back in Feb but haven’t left the country since. I read online that my presence in the USA is unlawful and staying here unlawfully for more than 180 would bar me from entering US for 3 years. What are my options ?
L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
Any H1b had a leased car and had to leave country due to Visa rejection or layoff? How did you manage the lease termination? Did you pay the remaining lease with penalty or did the dealer do any concessions?
Meeting with a recruiter at one of the FAANG companies. I won’t be able to move jobs because of H1b /GC at least for the next year. Any idea if I should start off with that or should I just try to understand the work that they have been doing?
Wondering if anyone had moved to consulting from PhD? Any challenges you foresee in filing green card under EB1A independently. My company is not willing to file for green card at this stage. Any recommendations on lawyers?
Does anyone know if EY is doing premium processing for h1-b visa transfers? Also what are the chances of an h1-b transfer being denied? Thanks!
Sometimes I feel like my boss takes "coaching" a little too far. He's all about "breaking me down" in order to "build me up". He's told me things like my voice is too boring when I present, or that I didn't do enough in my last role, suggesting that I wouldn't be in his team if it weren't for him in team meetings. Yesterday he asked me to call someone (on a non-urgent topic) who was on DND, and when I told them I'd call them later, he mimicked me. Am I being too sensitive?
Any recommendations on books/podcasts (and other sources) about CM? Not just to expand technical skills but also soft skills and external consulting?
Accenture Strategy layoffs? .....👀
W+K is in hot water in Brazil — another instance of ads going wrong because of little empowered-to-speak-up diversity at the table at any stage of the concepting, pitching, greenlighting, production, post-production, finishing, final approval and distribution?

Analysts who left in their 1st year either (voluntarily or laid off) where did you end up and how long did it take you? Consulting isn't for me and I'm obviously only eligible for entry level roles
Have an interview for a strategy job at Wayfair later this week... anybody have any insight on them?
I love my job at EY but the salary sucks. I have barely seen a 100 dollar raise monthly past three and half years. My salary started out at 62 and is barely there at 74 now. How do we negotiate here
Guy behind me in the group 1 line to board the plane - "are you group 1?" - no asshole, I'm just standing here to be a total inconvenience to you. STFU and go to your exit row seat.
I've been working towards a T10 mba since before I graduated from undergrad. Hustled at work to get early promotions and the best projects. This allowed me to go from $60k to $115k TC at 1 YOE. Founded a student org at my UG serving URM and stayed involved after graduating, personally mentoring close to 100 students over 4 years since graduating, and the org itself serving around 2000 URM since its inception. 169V 160Q on the GRE Dinged with no interview at HSW Kellogg Booth last R1 (cont)
Need some advice. Currently 1st year M at 125 base. Got an offer at a small boutique strategy firm for 160base 15-20% yearly bonus. No brainer? Or is it better to stay at ACN or go to another big consulting/tech firm?
Anyone have any insight on the culture/personality differences between the Northeast and SoCal?

I have zero motivation to work out at home (won’t be back to the gym anytime soon where I live) but I know it’s necessary for both my physical and mental health. Any suggestions for motivation and maybe some great at home workouts I could try?? Getting desperate over here!
Hello all - I got hired by a company based in Massachusetts for a 100% WFH role and will be moving to Texas. Because I’m based in Texas and the company in mass, do I still have to pay income tax in Mass? Big reason for moving to Texas was COL
