Looking for advice. I’m an Analyst and really interested in exploring the LSHC sector more in particular R&D and Value Based Care. I’m currently staffed at a LS client but am given no opportunities to learn specifics to that industry & most of my learning is through PRD or online courses. I’m interested in gaining hands on experience;& have talked to my leads but they really haven’t been too helpful and want me to “concentrate on my role” (Testing, I have good feedback). What do I do?

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!

Hi Folks - I wanted to understand..how is H1B 6 years duration counted? Is it strictly by the dates on the petition? In my petitions for example, first one was valid starting Oct 2017 and then I got an extension in 2020 till Feb 2023.. so that just equates to about 5 years and 4 months. So is my H1B only till Feb 2023 or it can extended to allow for the remaining period?
