I'm marrying an american. Can you apply for the GC and spouse visa from europe? So that I can work immediately if we migrate back to the US?
Hello there! Presently on EB2 and of Indian nationality with Priority date in Aug 2016. Since I am a people manager and we have an office in Toronto, we were looking into getting a PR in Canada and having me work there for a year before coming back to the US on a L1A visa. Thus shortening my GC wait time. However with the recent EB3 retrogression, they are looking into possibly downgrading me to EB3 instead. Which route (L1A or EB3) would be quicker and dependable? How to convince them? Thanks!
Friends. I am currently in the US. I have the option to do border TN visa or the mail in option. I am a Canadian citizen. Which option should I do?
I was late in submitting some expenses due to which my Amex got blocked. Am I in trouble ??

International Admits from India - how are you planning to obtain a US Visa right now? The US Embassy and Consulates are closed.
Currently on H1B (it has been less than a year) and just applied for Green Card through marriage. I really want to leave my current company and don't want to be tied to H1B while searching for new job. Is it safe to leave your company and use your work permit from the GC application?
I-495 filed in the last month. How long until I get my green card. Does the interview process hamper progress
I hate my job so much I want to quit. I’m on H-1B. Can I switch to H4 with on my husband’s visa and switch back to H-1B when I get a new job?
Started H1B transfer over a month ago and still hasn’t filed yet. Is this normal? LCA was certified 2 weeks ago and law firm said the company hasn’t provided additional job duties so they can’t finalize the filing.
For those of you who want the consulates to start normalizing the regular visa appointment process, please sign this petition http://chng.it/CphYDBxd8F
If I know i want to stay and be in/near Tech, is it wise to chase M7 only? Like the top tech MBAs include schools outside M7 - CMU, Georgia tech, etc
H1B transfer is in progress. The start date on LCA is 12/06, but I might get an approval from USCIS next week itself. **Can I join the other firm before 12/06? Even with full 2 weeks of notice period, I will be free by 11/20. Wondering if I can join the other firm sooner
Has anyone recently did H1B transfer with PP? What is the processing time after USCIS receive the case?
I just turned 30. This last year of my life, I had a laser focus of being more financially discipline and paying off my 20k+ debt (loans, credit card, etc). And with this paycheck hitting tomorrow I will finally be “out of the red.” I don’t usually make these type of posts, but seeing other success stories like this posted in FB inspired me. Hopefully this will inspire at least one of you.
What’s your take on the impact immigration laws have had on so many of our people? Seems like many of the good ones are looking at exit opportunities due to the uncertainty of the whole situation.
If i’m on third year of H1B but leave for school (for completely different field), can I use the existing H1B when I get a job after graduating from grad school? Or do I need to go through new h1b lottery?
I am 10 days into my H1B grace period with no leads. Are there any suggestions for next steps?
What is the general comp structure like at ACN for MC for the following levels (Tier 1 city) -SA -C1 -C2 -C3 -M1 -M2 -M3 -SM
Been 2 weeks and I am tired of pumping. I only pump like 20-30 per session and 5x a time but each time it takes almost 1h from start to finish (lube the flange, gather the equipment, find a spot, find my water/food, pump, clean up and put stuff away) and I am not even washing them (hubby is doing that). What did you do to make it more efficient? Also I can't seem to figure my flange fitting. I follow the guidelines and the suggested one is more uncomfortable than a large size. Help.
I’m on a 10-day solo retreat in the middle of nowhere. I’m reading The Autobiography of Malcom X. I’m not sure how I’m going to make it back to work, y’all. The pandemic has allowed me to “be” without the gaze of whiteness. I’m tempted to walk away from the Corporate world and all that comes with it. I don’t find it validating and it feels like the hamster wheel of meaninglessness. Am I alone? How do you deal? Do you have an exit plan/strategy?
Any solutions architects here? If so, how did you get started in consulting. Best project/ worst project.
Thinking of moving from mid tier (BDO/GT/RSM) to big 4. Is it worthwhile? Anyone else done this and have experience to share?

Considering an “attorney development” role at a big firm. Currently midlevel at a big firm. I would be helping with career planning, reviews and staffing. The attorney development role is low six figures (less than market 1st year salary) and 9-6. I don't hate practicing law, just looking for better hours and long term viability. appreciate hearing from anyone who knows folks in similar roles.
Anyone know what base looks like for Amazon operations role? 8yoe, masters, secret clearance, but would be remote
Temporarily traveled to SC. Matched with a guy on app and we’ve been talking for about a month. We are planning to meet up in DC where I live. He wants to go to a Dallas game but I’m not trying to pay $400 for a ticket (not into football). I also feel selfish for not wanting to spend that amount since he will have to buy a flight ticket and pay for a hotel. It sucks because I just want a dinner date but he’s putting in a lot of time and money to meet me. Should I just buy the ticket?
Has anyone transitioned into product management? I would love to hear your story! I have 8 years experience in project management but I don’t know how to pivot. I don’t think I want to pivot internally because I’ve heard negative things about our product management teams. I’ve been thinking about moving into project management at a SaaS company but that is proving to be hard since I have no SaaS experience. Would love to hear anyone experience on moving into product management.
I love working in the big 4. Forget the hours and focus on the amazing opportunity. I wasn't born in anything close to middle class. I will never take this opportunity for granted.
