I filed prevailing wages in June this year under H1b. When would I expect to receive response from DOL?
For those, who are immigrants, what made you stay in New York? Would be especially interested to hear from those who didn’t come for economical reasons. I am told the excitement about the city wears off 😅 I am European, just came 2 years ago and am still loving it, but also start to wonder if staying in a job I don’t like it’s all worth it (I am on L1 visa, so no way to find a new job). Life in Europe isn’t too bad either.
Is it possible to file EB1 on H1b if I qualify for the '12-month outside US managerial position' criteria?

Anyone know of a reliable immigration attorney I can connect to? Looking for help to file for asylum. Thanks!!
L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
Has anyone completed I-9 recertification at D while waiting for h1b to get approved? Opt expires in July and H1B is pending so my cap gap takes me at least to end of September. How to get firm to extend authorization from July to Sept without hard copy of the receipt notice? (Lawyers only share final approval paperwork)
Is Accenture sponsoring H1B at M& SM levels? If so, how responsive is their legal team for H1B / GC related filings?

Anyone has experience working for Axtria? I have just spoken to the HR who sent me an immigration question which is extensive including asking for my pay stubs and W2’s , certificates etc even before the start of the process. I feel that this is quite invasive before the first round
My h1b got approved this year in Consular processing and with all the uncertainty I am planning to change it to a COS instead. Anyone applied for a change to Change of Status from Consular processing. How much time does the process of changing to COS usually take? Potential RFE etc?
Any amazing immigration lawyers in Miami? It’d be for a Venezuelan citizen on a L-1. Have completed a Bachelor’s in the states and currently working towards another degree looking for options to gain employment/sponsorship in their industry. Appreciate any and all info!
How come some of the H1B applications are processed quickly (in a day or two) whereas others are still in queue for 12 days on premium processing? Don’t they follow sequence number?
I hope to get some thoughtful responses from this post and nothing more. I work for a mid-tier firm after working for big 4s, I joined here after being let go. Having worked for a year, I kind of have this constant thought in my mind that my next lay off is coming. Reasons I think I don’t meet the expectations- in a way my work quality is average. Given am on H1b and a family man, this constant thought of lay off is driving me so crazy that I fear might take me to depression. What should I do?
This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer? Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)

Up for promotion to manager, have an offer to leave Big 4 for a 35% pay bump. Would you try to negotiate if you know others who have jumped to the same company for 15% more?
I have my MHA and upon graduation I saw myself working for a large hospital/ healthcare org in a more administrative role. Ended up in consulting despite my desires and am regretting it almost 2 yrs later. Not sure where to start looking since I would take a pay cut with many admin roles or I don’t have enough experience yet for higher paying roles. Trying to determine if switching to industry is worth the pay cut or if anyone has any other suggestions of jobs to look towards, please lmk
