Here’s some insight on the Covid-19 stimulus package for work visa resident aliens http://immigrationgirl.com/are-legal-immigrants-eligible-for-cares-act-checks/
Question for Deloitte H1b folks - are we allowed to take LOA on our visa? What are the procedures? Thanks in advance.
H1b 🐟 - what does it mean when your petition has an RFE? What kind of information do they commonly ask for? Apologies if this is a stupid question.
Applied for H1B transfer on April 29th in premium and an RFE has been issued even in these critical times. Just thought of sharing it with 🐠 here!
I got an offer from Deloitte and they have started my H1B transfer. In the meantime I got an interview call from Google (Which I would prefer over Deloitte). Can I continue interviewing while H1B transfer is in progress? If I get the second offer (Which is a big IF) can I so no to Deloitte at that point after the H1B is approved?
International 🐠, I recently recieved my green card I140 receipt notification under EB1C. Can I switch companies without having my green card process being affected?
I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!
If you go from h1b to h4, but still have time left on your original h1b visa, can you switch back to h1b easily?
Hi all, my H1B got approved today and I am waiting on the actual physical notice. In parallel I have a L2 EAD extension request in process. My H1B is valid from oct 1 only. Can I withdraw my L2 tomorrow? Is it okie if I am out of status for nine days? I am worried that the L2 will get approved. If it does get approved, what do I do?

Anyone know of a reliable immigration attorney I can connect to? Looking for help to file for asylum. Thanks!!
Stuck on O-1. Anyone here successfully applied for the EB-1A green card? Would love some insight.
Not that I or someone I know is in a situation, but I was just thinking if you guys have a contingency plan in case things go south at work. Mainly with respect to sustaining immigration nightmares. Specially at experienced M/ SM level people get canned without prior notice. And now that Deloitte has asked staff to find work for 45 hours every week it's going to get more and more challenging on mid senior level as well.How are you guys preparing for the rainy day?
I have a New York LCA and want start working from Texas... I already started the amendment process and was told that the amendment should be filed before March end. So I booked my flight tickets for April start. However, it seems like the filing is taking longer. Do you guys know if I can still go and file the time under New York? Is there a risk? Would anyone check my flight records? P.S. My LCA is filed but H1B amended petition is not filed yet. Lawyers are waiting for certified LCA.
Looking to buy our first home. Any recommendations on banks that offer mortgages on H1B in NJ?
I currently have my green card process ongoing with Publicis Sapient; I-485 was filed more than 180 days ago, however, the I-140 is not approved yet. If I leave for another employer at this stage, is it likely that they might withdraw the I-140 which would mean withdrawing the green card process completely? I do have a previously approved EB2 I-140 which was downgraded to EB3 I-140 in October last year and is awaiting approval.

Recruiter from Amazon reached out for a phone screen for a L7 role st Amazon - Principal Product Manager, Technical. I'm a first year M and have been in consulting mostly. I do have the technical expertise the role requires but no product management experience per se. Think L7 at Amazon for me is a reach. My concern is if I interview and fail, I will be barred from interviewing from another role for 6 to 12 months. Should I give it a shot or save my chance for something more realistic (e.g. L6)?
I'm a young software developer working with one of the FAANG but I keep hearing that fintech companies pay Software Developers more. What should I learn if a wanted to move to a Software development role in a Fintech company? In all my previous SDE roles (intern/entry level) I've always had to understand the domain of the projects so I'm thinking about upskilling as I'm not looking for entry level jobs anymore.
So, I’m leaving and my leadership is pissed. I feel like their attitude is “well you’re leaving so now I just need you so I can download your brain.” and I’ve never felt more like an object and I’m trying not to internalize how guilty I feel about causing others to pickup my slack. Context: solid roll-off plan and I did all of my deliverables for the next month by working through the weekend. Any advice on how to reframe my thinking? Alternatively, AITA? They did just promote me.

I'm just trying to see what other teachers are doing to balance the two types of learners and how give fair assessments.....
