Yes but accept long delays

I'm worried about coming to the US and not being able to work straightway. So by doing it from europe, we can continue to live our life there until I get the EAD right?

You have a good point. A friend of mine did aos last year and it left her over 6 months without employment authorization. She was doing volunteer work to feel fulfilled but it was rough mentally

following!

You should come to the states and then apply. Applying from europe will take a lot longer

Come to America first and then do status change.

Friends - Is any company hiring? Considering H1B transfer? I have total only 28 months left on my visa? Doesn’t look like the firm is going to sponsor green card. I have been performing well in my department no negative reviews in 4 years yet HR denied to file GC. Apparently they are only considering Managers for GC. Is this the same situation in Big 4 Audit? Please comment.

Chase Freedom Unlimited vs Chase Freedom Flex. Thoughts on which to get?

Both have the same intro offers, including 5% groceries for the first year, and 5% travel thru Chase, 3% restaurants and drug stores forever. Thinking the Flex is the better pick out of the two but maybe im missing something

Okay so it’s my first week in a new career for a new company. I wanted to make a good impression so I stayed a little later to do some catch up before finding my way to a hotel (since I’m waiting for my apartment approval) but I fell asleep and woke up hours later with no one here and the lights out. I don’t want to accidentally trigger any security alarms trying to leave, but I also don’t want them to catch me spending the night here and assume the worst. How should I go about this?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.
