Deloitte isn’t entertaining transferring from USI to US. Is it worth joining a sub with D, filing the GC and then come back to Deloitte US? Currently a SC with two years to go on H1B.

If you get picked in H1B lottery in March and employer does premium processing, when will you be able to start?

Definition of an advertising creative: Someone who got lots of validation from parents for being clever and talented in school, and needed a career that allowed them to continue building their self worth through external validation only to realize that bosses (the new parents) seldom praise you so you look to greater validation through awards until you either get said awards and realize that it only leads to wanting more, or you get old enough to see through it all and are laid off.

Hi Everyone, I’m a UI/UX designer recently laid off from an agency in Detroit. I have 10+ years experience with a background in front-end development. If anyone here is looking for candidates, PM me.

Anyone know of job opportunities for a UK qualified solicitor (corporate law) in Germany? Doesn't necessarily have to be legal counsel, open to other roles, preferably not a big corporate firm (mental health reasons). S.O. and I are moving to Germany, both are allowed to work there due to EU nationality so visa is not an issue. Unfortunately not great German language skills (fully aware this poses a problem). Would really appreciate any help on this, TIA.
