Am I allowed to be unemployed and stay in the US if my new employer has an h1b petition in process? Like I quit before my h1b change of employer approval is complete? Thank you!
Anyone successfully convinced a US employer to sponsor your H1B when the company traditionally does not sponsor? How do you do that?
I am interested in discussing joint marketing efforts with other solo practitioners (DC, VA, MD area) where we could have 1-2 lawyers within each legal specialty. I am federal practitioner (bankruptcy, tax, immigration, federal compliance, employment),so I could refer many other types matters to a joint group. We could maintain our solo practices, but have more joint marketing
Did anyone have a their H1b lottery picked and approved through a different employer while working with Deloitte and transferred back to Deloitte after H1b approval
My fiancé is on H1-b and his parents’ US tourist visa expired. Is there any way to expedite the visa process so that they can come to US for marriage functions? I am a US citizen if that helps at all.
What’s Deloitte’s green card policy?
International 🐠: Has anyone requiring visa sponsorship successfully navigated to another company in the US recently? How long did it take? I’m going on 2-3 years with minimal success...

Anyone got recommendations for fantastic immigration lawyers in CA? My fiancé is on a green card (2 years away from citizenship) and would like to have his elderly parents join us here in the US (they’re currently on visitor visa) 🙏🏻
Hi fellow immigrants. My partner and I are in the process of getting a visa, and we need an agent and as many contacts as possible for intent letters. Anyone that can offer some help? We're experience enough, hot agencies, hot cities, live work, real interest from NY agencies... Is just that we don't know people in the US yet. Any help would be appreciated.
My H1B expires in 8 months and my company has not filed my GC. Can i start processing my H4 and EAD based on my spouses i140 right away or do i need to wait till Dec to start my H4 application.
Ugh, my downgraded Amex green card arrived today. Also t-minus 17 days until the new $60 mobile reimbursement. $1200+ in comp I will miss!
L1 holders - I need to travel to extend my L1A visa. PwC Law says that time to issue the new visa is 5 business days. Any recent experience here on this waiting time?
Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.
People who came to the US on L1B, and successfully switched jobs (assuming visa switch from L1B to H1B), could you please share your experience or provide any useful tips? Feeling stagnant and trapped at my current job partly due to visa restrictions and ofcourse the pandemic situation. Looking to jump ship but not even sure if it's possible on an L1B.
[Advice needed] I have a job offer from US based company and they are willing to sponsor me on L1. However with new proclamation, it looks like the process will further be delayed by 3 months and I can get a valid work visa by June/July at best. Alternatively I have an option of relocating to Canada as well. This process should be fairly quick and easy. My question is - 1. Should I opt for Canada or wait for US Visa? 2. Are there any chances that Biden administration overturns this. TIA
Hello everyone, for a lot of my case load I use hardship as part of the reason to apply for certain immigration benefits. I currently have clients all over the U.S and I have been having trouble finding psychologist or therapist in Massachusetts for a client. Does anyone that they could recommend in the field and for the state? Thanks you!
German court ruled that a Muslim man who refused to shake the hand of a woman should not receive German citizenship. He did not do so for religious regions. I am pro-immigration and also think people need to have freedom of religion, but at the same time it can be seen as discriminatory for women so got me wondering what’s acceptable and what’s not. Thoughts?
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
Hi everyone 🎅! I'm looking to join online communities (like this one) for people in customer success. Particularly Slack groups. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!
Just got laid off today 😥 super sad
I was let go from a big4 and I really enjoyed the idea of audit, working in teams, coaching staff, and doing campus recruiting. The hours and stress obviously were not great. Should I look at another big 4? Regional firms? Or where should I look to next for simular opportunities?
I have a salary range in mind for a new role based on online research and target increase from my comp now. But my research shows the data points are for salaries in HCOL areas. Do I need to adjust what I ask for if it’s a remote role and I’m not in HCOL city? Don’t want to overshoot and lose a great opportunity.
Can someone give me an idea of payscale range in Singapore at a manager level for MBB? - Fixed + Variable. Asking for a friend since I don't have any known contact in my network
For those having rentals in India. How you handling when the tenant is disagreeing to pay rents due to covid even though they are employed with big 4 and have no compensation impact? They are not budging. Any guidance how to deal?
Anyone free to chat? I am on vacation and have nowhere to go.. Could use a company... M here (Disclaimer since I know some of may ask that lol)
I have a mortgage with JP Morgan chase. If I join PwC am I expected to refinance my loan with another company since it’s an audit client? If so am I expected to bear all the closing cost related to the refinance? I’ll be joining at SM level.
Just turned 50 and allocated about 10% in my 401k to a long term bond fund which is already down 3% this year . I am not a fan of bonds especially with the current rate environment. Any suggestions instead of bonds to protect principal . Money market ? Target date fund ?
Heading home from a fun agility lesson 😊😊
Anyone fly out of LAX recently? Have a flight Wednesday afternoon. Can’t imagine wait times are long? Have precheck.
My parents are flying back from Seattle to India on Sunday. I don’t live there but taking them to see the city before their return. Where around Seattle downtown can I get a COVID test that can give the result in 24 hours.
What does M&A consulting at big 4 look like, especially at the entry level? All my previous experience is in audit/tax and I know nothing about consulting, just wanted to try something new. I liked my finance courses in undergrad, but not sure how relevant that is. Would I have ANY transferable skills from my accounting background? Can you explain what the work is like for a new hire? Especially if you've made a similar switch?
As a 20+ year lawyer with no big law experience (smaller and mid size firms plus government and in house experience), would a BigLaw firm even consider me? Perhaps an of counsel position? Even a senior associate?
I don't want to get vaccinated. I have debilitating anxiety, asthma, severe allergies to everything under the sun and afraid of a reaction. I have recently recovered from Covid too. I hate how ostracized society friends work everything is making me feel about this decision, which I know is only an inevitability at this point because my family is overseas and I can't not see them for the rest of my life. Anyone else in the same boat as me? PS. If ur here to bash on me keep it moving.
Anyone given the Googlyness and Leadership interview? What kind of questions are asked?￼
