I went for my h1b visa stamping and got a section 221g and they gave me the passport back and i received an email asking for background information for past 15 years to which i responded with a detailed response. This was my second h1b stamping, i got the first one successfully last year with no issues, and not sure why i got section 221g this time. I had not changed any job, the stamping was for the same exact job. Anyone has any insight or been in the same boat? Should i be worried?

For those that have been job searching prior to Covid how difficult is the current hiring climate vs. the one prior to Covid?
Working in my office used to be my primary source of work outfit inspiration but since working remote staying aware of what styles are in is nearly impossible. I live in a smallish town, so going out doesn't help fill in that awareness gap. Are there any online communities or slack communities where people talk about and share style inspiration I can wear at work? I'm 28, work in tech, and my office is a start up, so attire is casual. I'd also be interested in brands people follow.
Considering leaving for another firm job, one year in. Thoughts? New position would be a better practice area fit and would only work with clients in the industry I want. Currently it’s about 60% of what I’d like. Also, current firm seems to be stagnating with low hours to go around. I’m worried about not making hours, missing my bonus, and low professional development. Comparable on prestige & exit options and would be $5k less. Just worried about burning bridges and leaving “too soon.”
Help me assess my finances? I make about 57k after taxes. I’m set up to max my 401k, Roth IRA, and have 6 months of expenses by the end of the year. After cost of living stuff, I’m left with $600/mo
