Nice, I have a few friends at Microsoft but more on the dev side. Since you're at the intersection of finance and tech, you should ask them about how they plan to utilize blockhain technology/cryptocurrency.

While giving the tech interview as well as while having the HR discussion, I mentioned my expected CTC as 9-10 LPA(CTC). I cleared the interview and uploaded all the documents in the portal yesterday. Today mrng all the document verification was completed. But when I got the call for offer discussion, she asked what u expect. I said 9-10 LPA. She questioned me that on what basis I am asking for this much hike. She offered me 6.3 LPA as CTC with 21% variable. 5.2 as basic. Rest part in comments..

I have an I-94 attached to I/797 notice with expiration date of 2/1/2023. Do you think I’d be able to submit a I-593 COS to b2 based on this I-94 date before leaving work? I want to have 6 months before leaving US for good. My concern is that the I-94 expires right with the h1b on the last day of work. I’d be quitting voluntarily so I don’t think the 60 days grace period applies. Just wanted to hear your general thoughts before reaching out to immigration lawyer.

Anyone know of job opportunities for a UK qualified solicitor (corporate law) in Germany? Doesn't necessarily have to be legal counsel, open to other roles, preferably not a big corporate firm (mental health reasons). S.O. and I are moving to Germany, both are allowed to work there due to EU nationality so visa is not an issue. Unfortunately not great German language skills (fully aware this poses a problem). Would really appreciate any help on this, TIA.

If I didn’t get a return offer from a summer internship, does that make me ineligible for rehire on a background check for a full time job? For context, I didn’t get fired or do anything illegal or rude. I showed up and tried every day. I just wasn’t as good with the soft skills and coding, and even then, I didn’t get anything lower than a 3/5 in my reviews. 3 was met expectations and I think that’s average. I also got some 4’s if that helps.
