May lose my grand dad to covid today. My mom is staying alone and all my aunts (Her sisters) are in the US. Everyone is suggesting that we bring her over so that she is not facing it alone. She has a US Visa until 2028. Does anyone know if the flights are getting disrupted? Is it possible to get her over asap?
Guys, has any one ever had to leave the US because they did not receive their H1b receipt notice before their EAD expiration date? Or were you able to present a different document to your school DSO as proof of being selected and in the process of waiting for H1b approval?
Help needed! Asking for a Brazilian friend who just recently had his O-1 visa approved (first one after an OPT). he got started on a couple jobs, but he’s always getting stuck on the “your I-94 is expired” issue. Some lawyers told him to leave the country, but he can’t seem to schedule an interview in any US consulates, as most are still closed/not taking non emergency cases due to covid. Has anyone been through this situation or have any tips on how to work around it? Thank you!

Flying in to O'Hare International from outside the US, and I'm not American. How good/bad are the immigration and customs lines?
Folks at EY who've applied for GC recently. I joined EY in June, so about 6 months in. I understand there is a 1 year wait on H1B before starting GC process. But have there been cases when this has started faster for new hires? I'm thinking of requesting in the new year by first talking to practice lead. Added incentive is SO is in her third try in 2021 and in case doesn't get picked, would want to keep the H4-EAD option open as soon as possible.
What is EY’s policy in sponsoring green card? Does one have to be at a particular level or spend a fixed time with the firm?

I’m renegotiating my current pay package and I think we will get to a good compromise on total package if I get the right perks. What kind of perks have people been seeing lately?

Lots of articles say it’s meaningless/less impactful to begin a convo with the typical “hey, how are you?”...What’s your take here? Let’s say you have an interview and the recruiter will call you at 9am. How do you answer the phone?
I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!
There have been many positive changes in my life and while I feel better, at the same time I am scared of losing it soon. Changed to a job that has better culture and aligns with my goals, got more active and social, back to my hobby, able to have free counseling now under new firm's benefits and the new therapist seems more helpful than the ones before, casually seeing some great guys… I feel my mental state is so "hyped" that idk if this "good" feeling will last…
Good article in WSJ today on best credit cards for points/ value for money; seems this new BOA card is the real deal....
Flight was delayed 3 hours last week and they gave me 7,500 bonus miles after I submitted a complaint. Is this the norm for a 3 hour delay? Any tips to get more miles when this happens?
A friend was told their firm will cut ties EOY if certain things don’t improve. Friend had planned to quit in the next year anyway (to start their own business), so there is no real incentive to bend over backwards. Friend’s goal is to keep the income for a little longer, but to minimize conflict / headaches. What’s the best move here? Wait until EOY and take the severance? Give 6 / 9 / 12 months’ notice now? Is there such a thing as too much notice? Could too much notice backfire?

Social media has made me go from not wanting kids to definitely not wanting kids. So. Many. Baby. Posts. Everywhere. Non-stop. People complain that when you have kids people only see you as a “mom” or “dad” and you lose your own identify, but I swear they do this to themselves. Also the other day I accidentally scrolled upon an instagram story of a baby and their blown out diaper. Just WHY is that necessary!? I don’t get it..
Anyone have success charging an hourly fee for financial planning? Considering making a jump into it, have cfp designation, but am mostly commission at the moment. Won’t be a total switch.
