Immigration Agency That Issues Visas, Green Cards Struggles to Stay Afloat
I have $800 in gift Visa gift cards sitting in a drawer from the past couple of years. Haven’t gotten myself anything fun since Covid started. Not going to invest them in crypto, don’t feel like a trip… what do?
In a predicament folks .. my new employer hired me into a full time role into the US but the immigration team has only done a TN for 10 months due to some administrative mistakes and now the paper work is done. I am working to see how i get this addressed as I cannot even sigh a lease for a 1 year place or lease a car if my status is under 1 year. I am confident they will renew me but it puts me in a jam. Any advice on this? Has anyone seen this?

Got a BS in Advertising in 2018 and have good knowledge of Adobe (photoshop, indesign, illustrator). Agency experience for 6 months doing PR, 1 year at marketing agency (google ads, SEO, analytics) and haven’t been able to work for a year due to visa processing so I’ve been doing freelance work: websites, social media… I believe I want to do strategy at an agency but also like consulting firms. I know my experience is a bit over the place so if anyone has any advice on what’d be a good fit!

When applying for U.S. jobs (as Canadian), do you check the box that says "Sponsorship required" (TN visa)?
I'm finding many companies telling me no due to needing Visa sponsorship, which in reality isnt really the case since we just need a job offer letter and apply.

Husband is returning to work from leave one week earlier than we planned. I’m feeling upset because I wanted to stave off finding childcare for an additional week. He wants to return to work because he started it right before leave and has been joining calls here and there during leave to stay informed, but wants to get plugged back in. Please convince me/comfort me that he’s doing the right thing

Wow. A UK partner just asked for a call to go over the closing checklist morning his time. No, I am not in the U.K. and no the deal is not closing this Friday. We are on the second round of drafts and the date has not even been set into drafts.
I’ve been working to or past midnight every night. I ignored his note about wanting it his morning time and suggested 10am my time. I’m sorry but I’m not waking up at 4am to walk you through a closing checklist that is pretty self explanatory. 😒
How should do you leave your firm? Letter or in person to supervising partner? I was recently offered a position which pays almost 40% higher doing exactly what I want to do (L&E).

One of my supervising attorneys all of a sudden is heavily redlining my work by just rephrasing what I originally wrote and adding things I find unnecessary. He didn’t use to redline my work this much and everything ends up being overly dense and wordy. I’ve always gotten good feedback on my writing skills and after 8 months at the firm I know my writing has improved. All other partners and supervisors are actually redlining my work less. Should I be suspicious or is he going through a phase?
