After 3 rounds of interviews (total 4 inc recruiter screen) over the past 5 odd weeks, just got told by a T2 consulting firm that they doesn’t sponsor H1B visas which is frustrating because they were aware of my visa situation right at the start. Sigh 😢. Understand it happens but frustrating nonetheless given the time and effort invested.
Can you apply for a green card to work in the US to sponsor yourself without an employer sponsored work visa (TN or otherwise)?
H1b peeps, Stephen Miller, the author of the immigration "ban" is now working on an EO on work visas.
What are some good ways to use AmEx points?
Forget Glassdoor. The government publicly reports the salaries of H1B visa employees. http://h1bdata.info/index.php?em=&job=&city=&year=All
Hello, I am on notice period and last 10 days are left.I have offer with 60% hike with one MNC but today only I received mail that my name is selected in H1B lottery system which was applied in march 2021. Now I am confused should I go with new offer or stay with infosys and wait to get this H1b petition and then travel to on site. Need your guidance and inputs for handle this sitution.
D fishes. If you didn’t get selected in H1B lottery, and this was your last attempt, worry not. I too sailed on the same boat. Now I am on day 1 CPT. There is a brighter side to this. IM/email me for more details.
Anyone nervous about h1b ??
On H1b. Planning to quit in September and then attend a friends wedding and leave the states within 60 days. Can’t take this job anymore and not really sure if it’s even worth it. Any tips or thoughts?
Being a foreign worker on H1b who recently rolled off from the project and currently on beach, what are my options in these times of impending slowdown?
This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer? Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)
I’m waiting on my h1b transfer. If I got rfe, I really want to use the waiting time to visit my family (have more than enough pto left with my current employer). Anyone know if it’s possible to use my old I797 to get VISA stamp? Then putting notice after I’m back.
Planning to visit India later this year, and also need to get my visa stamped (current stamp expired in 2016). I have an I-797 number from the approved extension, and another one from an amendment...
I have seen multiple posts of people complaining about the US immigration policies. Attitudes and laws around U.S. immigration have vacillated between welcoming and restrictive since the beginning.
EY fishes- what’s the typical comp range for experienced staff in Tech Consulting? L/MCOL, want to make sure that I’m not lowballing myself.
Interviewed yesterday with D for a consulting role with GPS 2ish YOE and multiple internships with big orgs. Everything went great except the qualitative part of the case which was awkward because I was emailed a sheet that had partial info about the case prior to the start, but I was supposed to act as if I didn’t? Quantitatively went very well. One interviewer had to reschedule due to technical difficulties. Idk if did well enough for the offer but the wait is🤢 Any tips on this last interv?
Could you lie to a company and tell them you have another offer letter for negotiating purposes? Trying to see if a company would ever ask proof of the other offer letter. Fighting for 120k base for a Splunk position.
What are y’all thoughts on using Slack for team collaboration? Is it just me or is the platform over complicated and clunky?
Is India issuing visa on arrival to US citizens right now? My spouse doesn’t have a OCI/PIO and last I heard visa on arrival for US arrivals was temporarily halted. Thanks!
Need advice and pep talk because I’m certain I have chronic imposter syndrome :( Background on me, I have about 6 years of work experience post college but have gone through many companies because of layoffs and/or reorgs. With that, I’ve bounced a lot with different industries and have done different roles for a year max. My current role is about to be my longest (thank goodness, hitting about 2 years) but I feel like I’m not a SME in anything but I feel embarrassment for myself (Cont.)
Anyone else becoming less productive with continued WFH or struggling in some way with staying focused?
Has anyone gone through the process of on-boarding a close management software? I’m specifically looking to hear of experience comparing Blackline, Floqast, and Trintech, ultimately what you chose and why. I’m in the midst of this now and would appreciate any valuable lessons learned / things that stood out as you made your decision on what fit was best for your company. Thanks!
Me: This project has a complex technical facet that will need a week or two of PT attention from one of the experienced seniors who has worked on this client before, because it has a lot of business context Partner: Here's a fresh staff with absolutely no background on that specific technical topic and also very little functioning business sense. You get him FT tho! So same same.
How do you motivate you partner? Does the bare minimum, never pushes himself or ideas. Feels like I carry the weight.
I have an interview at a law firm that a law school classmate (acquaintances only) works at. I want to reach out to him, but I’m unsure what is appropriate to say. Any advice?
Currently planning an Australian vacation. Definitely visiting Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Debating on adding Cairns to see the Great Barrier Reef. I don’t scuba so is it worth it?
