Hello everyone! I have been contacted by this recruiting agency called CGC (Career group companies) and they ask to complete some paperworks on their site even before the interview with their recruiters. In my past experience, if I remember well, you fill paperworks only after you have been selected to start the assignment, so I am a little worried about this. What do you advice? Do you know if they are going to prevent me to be hired by companies directly just because I am in their system?

I've been solitary all my life - no friends and no girlfriends and have been perfectly with the kind of boring lifestyle I live. For additional context, Indian born but raised since I was 3 in the US by traditional parents. I've recently been getting, for lack of a better term in English, "marriage interview" requests from the parents of others also raised in the US. Throwing Mr. Solitary into the fastest version of speed dating possible seems like a recipe for disaster. Any advice?

Hello. I’m working on H1B and recently got a promotion. My company is amending my H1B and told me that since my new job is remote I can only work at my apartment (since it’s my legal location). Is there any chance they can figure out I’m working remotely from somewhere else? Also, I’m also in the process of applying for green card (thru employment). Does anyone know the timeline for this given my H1B is getting amended ? (My country has no waiting time).

Currently going through the interview process with a brand I love. I've interviewed with the CMO, completed a work task and presented it back to the team, and met with the CEO / founder. They've just come back to me saying that their creative agency has "offered to help with the process". This seems unusual especially given they're looking to bring all creative in house. First time I've ever heard of this happening - any theories as to why this is now a step in the process? Is it a red flag?
