Hi, I’ve completed 3 years as H1B and just received extension for the next 3 years. My employer will file prevailing wage with the DOL in the next 3 months in EB3. I have heard that some FAANG companies start filing GC within 3 months of joining. I’m already studying to switch jobs. How much time do I have to switch jobs so that there is adequate time left for GC application?

I am currently in the U.S. on an F2 visa through my wife who decided to go back to school. I was approached by Deloitte and after having a bunch of interviews got an offer which I have signed. Now to the problem - visa. They seem to have been under the impression that I already had the H1B status and only needed to sponsor the application process. This is obviously not the case and now we are preparing for the application in March. Q: what is my best recourse if I don’t win the lottery? EB visa?

Can someone refer me to visa?

Hi USI 🐟 First 3 years on my H1B visa are expiring in Sep this year. No one has reached out to me regarding extension filing. Does anyone know what the process is, whom shall I reach out to get this process started??


I’m in the US since Sep 2018 (in L1-B VISA Category) and promoted to Manager in Jun 2021. My L1-A was approved in Jan 2022. I was promoted to a manager while staying in the US (on deployment). I’m speculating transferring to the US firms but have a question around the category for GC. If I get transferred to the US firms, based on the above information will my application for GC be eligible under EB1-C category? I’ll be talking to attorneys to discuss, but just wanted some guidance on this.

My bf can’t afford a ring. He cannot afford anything right now actually. But I love him anyway. However, I’ve always wanted a nice Diamond engagement ring. I don’t mind chipping towards the ring and my own parents said they don’t mind either. How do I broach this conversation with him? He already feels bad enough that he can’t get me what I like. Thoughts?

It’s 10:36 pm on a Sunday night and I need answers. In Rihanna’s song “Sex With Me,” there’s a line, “a b*tch never ever had to use lip gloss on it.” Is lip gloss slang for something? Is this a “lube in a pinch” thing? Euphemism? What am I missing here? Please help, I have insomnia already and this will keep me awake tonight.

Regional Public Senior that left to be a Senior Internal Auditor at a bank. I have a really good reputation here, my CAE tells me regularly he’s glad I’m here. I don’t do any SOX, I only do operational and compliance audits. I also manage an enterprise high risk issue validation process. There is opportunity for me to progress to a VP over 5 years within IA, or 2 years in another department. But I don’t know if that’s what I want to do. What roles could my experience get me in the market?
