NAFTA VISA (TN) Holders: has anyone switched groups within the same company and had to re-apply for TN? I’m looking for ways to move to other group, which will likely have a different job description
All the folks out there on a visa (e.g. H1B), what are some side hustles you have to earn some extra $$. Need some extra hope today to keep at it!
I recently posted about moving to Antigua and Barbuda to live and work remotely on the digital nomad visa. Several people expressed interest in how I'm doing it, so I created an instagram. I'm documenting the steps of emigrating including pet import licenses, enrolling kids in an international school, cooking local food, and assimilating to life in the Caribbean. For those who are interested, check me out at: https://www.instagram.com/webelongbythesea/

I received a welcome offer for Amex platinum of 150K membership rewards points in the mail today, a week or two past signing up for the card for the card with a 100K welcome bonus. Is it possible to contact them and get the offer upgraded retroactively? Does anyone have experience with this?
Is there a way to apply to jobs in Canada if you are working in USA on work visa? Do Canadian companies provide visa sponsorship for eligible candidates currently based in US?

New to this…with Amex Platinum what is the best / most economical use of your points? I see you can cover charges on the card as well.
Hey fish! Have a question on work authorization. If I have an H1B and wife’s on the dependent EAD (after I-140) and I go out of country to work with same company. Does her EAD still continue to be valid? Or does it invalidate the moment the primary visa holder is out of the US.
Has anyone recently gotten their H1B visa stamping done in Mumbai using Dropbox. If yes, what was the processing time and the overall experience? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Any luck getting the expiration date on United lounge passes extended? Have two through my Explorer credit card that expire in Sept and I don’t have any trips coming up.
I was let go by EY last September, does anyone know if they are hiring back the people they let go? I am from tax. Given the speculation of oct visa bulletin, where it’s anticipated, similar to last year this year too the date of filing might move ahead 4-5 years, in this scenario my date might become current and would like to file 485 with EY since my current PERM is not yet initiated. Please advise.

New consultant in Big 4 here. I can’t believe I am asking about this, but I landed on a team where half the team are older East Asian immigrants and don’t get along due to national and cultural differences. I am just watching virtual hostility in front of me daily. The other half of the team (myself included) are American raised of all different identities are more junior and just don’t know what to do. Advice please.

Pregnant with verbal job offer - how to negotiate maternity leave? I am only a few weeks pregnant and I have a great job offer. There are two points I want movement on (1) equity (2) maternity leave. The company offers new employees with <1 year tenure 14-16 weeks unpaid mat leave (+ whatever I get from CA state short term disability program which is less than half my salary). This is a 300+ person unicorn company that is really excited about me. What’s worth pushing for here?
My school has decided to bring all students back and put them all in the classroom. I have 29 students with the potential of 32. I don’t feel comfortable with this. We are supposed to try to keep 6 ft between isles, but in the row of students they are desk to desk. So shoulder to shoulder 6ft or less. Face to face is about 2ft, and some are much closer....... does anyone else have this going on at their school?
Baby sitting friend’s 5 year old and today she has 99 fever. She is going to see a friend on Saturday and told me she will get a COVID test before that. In her words, ‘I am going to get tested because if I have COVID I can pass it to my friend and the friend will meet so many people and she can pass into them and then all those people will meet other people and spread to them and then COVID will spread everywhere.’ I don’t know where little lady learnt it from but this was impressive.

How far out can you typically set up interviews? Can I take two weeks before first interview?
Remember when Fauci said we didn't need masks then said we did but only N95 masks, but then said any face covering will work. Then said if you're vaccinated you need to double mask. Then said you can single mask. Then said no masks if you're vaccinated. Now the CDC says you need a 3rd vaccine shot to "greatly" prevent delta variant. But no, EVEN if you're vaccinated you can get Covid. Like f off. This is not exact science clearly. I have taken 2 shots but now I refuse to listen to this BS.
If I accept the promotion to Partner/Principal what's the least number of years I could work without it being a financial mistake. I have an opportunity to do something completely unrelated that's my passion, but I feel like that's the wrong decision when I'm this close. The other opportunity should still be there for 2-3 years
