My application did not get picked for H1B. How was your experience for this year lottery?

Too many applications, which comes down to the cheap online registration process even more encouraging Indian IT outsourcing body shops filing like 100,000 applications to fill 5,000 positions because they don’t frickn care about who of those 100,000 ultimately get the position. I’m (maybe?) exaggerating but that’s so frustrating to see. Trump ran on the ticket of changing H1B to prefer those who contribute most to US society but nothing has changed ever since. H1B is not supposed to be for welfare to the world—that is what Diversity Lottery is for. But it is currently unintendedly designed as a welfare to the low-skilled people.

@D folks, Anyone looking into transfers to member firms?

Yes, in my case, my manager raised the possibility of helping me find an opportunity in a non-US location within the company. It may not exactly be a “transfer” since the nature of the job and line of business may be different. I’m grateful for the support but I’m also not sure how feasible this would be. I guess today is a gloomy day for me and many other people....

Got an offer for a job that starts in the summer (Jul 2022) and the firm is willing to apply for the H1B lottery. Since I’d have two entries (McK + other firm), what happens if the McK entry gets picked up (assuming the other firm isn’t)? Am I correct to assume that I’d have to stay at McK atleast until Oct 2022? Or can the other firm formally apply for my H1B instead?

Hi friends, I’m in a bit of a dilemma, and was hoping for some feedback here. I am a Canadian citizen, and have been living and working in the US since 2017 on an L1A visa. I decided to pursue a GC about a year ago, and my company approved the process. Our immigration attorneys were far from helpful, and my case didn’t get very far. Fast forward a year, our company has been acquired, and my GC case has now been transferred to a new legal team. The process is basically restarting from scratch.

Does anyone knows if Deloitte can file H1B before the starting date? I got hired around October 2021 and official starting date might around summer/fall 2022.

Hi everyone. Not sure this post falls into the right category but here it goes: I have been talking to two agencies who are interested in my work. One already made an offer. The other has not yet, but we are in a second round of interviews. My question: is it appropriate to bring the fact that I have already an offer from an agency 1 when talking to agency 2? I am very interested in the second agency but I’d like them to know that I can’t wait too long. Thoughts?

Engaging in dumb hypotheticals but I'm curious: At 1 YOE post-MBA, would you pick Amazon or MBB if the estimated TC is the same, and you've been working in consulting since your MBA? Obviously this depends on the role, but for the sake of a broader audience, we'll assume the role simply isn't a backwater contracting/etc. role at Amazon and that for MBB it's core consulting. Like an option below & comment your thoughts.
