Would have worked if I wasn't an international, didn't have international travel planned and the US didn't have a travel ban!

Your deployment consultant speaks with you during your first week. Make sure to say it again in that meeting and to remind ppl each chance you get. It shouldn’t be an issue.

My contract has 4 week notice for leaving the job, and the new job I’m about to accept would like me to start asap (and so would I). How shitty is it to do 4 week notice with 2 of those being vacation? Wouldn’t want to burn a bridge but 4 weeks, jeez.

I was saving up my PTO to plan a trip to home country in December. Now the immigration team has started an immigration case so I cannot travel in December.

Has anyone ever tried anything like this and got a positive result?
