I’m an American working at a large agency under a holding company. If I want to work in London, what will it take for an agency to sponsor me for a visa? Do I have a shot when I’m a mid level?

If you’re at WPP, check out springboard on the inside wpp intranet. There is also a whole bunch of info about moving to another location and what you need to do. WPP are fairly open about moving but you will not be able to approach another WPP agency without talking your current HR due to poaching guidelines. From experience, even if you’re mid-level, it shouldn’t be a barrier. If the agency has budget to hire, they’ll be open to moving people. Ideally you want your current agency to help you move so def talk to your line manager and HR! Good luck! (Sorry I only speak from WPP experience as I know the process well! No idea which group you’re in but i’m guessing all of them will have similar opportunities available!)

I’m responsible for the card & payments, so can I use it for personal and only submit reimbursements for work charges? And do you get to keep the points on a corporate card? TIA!

And I’m done! Got an 83 on my REG retake.

FAR: 79 (10/18)
AUD: 72 (1/19), 82 (5/19)
BEC: 76 (1/20)
REG: 72 (3/20), 83 (9/20)

I used Becker for all but the most recent REG retake and generally found that it worked for me. I never watched videos but read every chapter and did all the MCQs and sims. I also never did practice tests because I never felt they were helpful for me.

For the most recent exam, I used Ninja because I wanted a more concise review instead of going through Becker again.

Hi All,

I got offer from Deloitte USI with 13.5 LPA Fixed. ( 50 % hike from my current CTC) and I have accepted the offer. YOE 5 . Later, I got another offer with 16 LPA from cognizant
I just tried to negotiate the Deloitte offer but Recruiter told me that this is a maximum hike(50 %)as per their budget and the offer cannot be modified once it is accepted.

Is it acceptable? I was thinking to join in Deloitte.
Please help me find the right decision (Deloitte USI or Cognizant)

Thanks!
