I recently got my H1B renewal notice but my wife’s H4/EAD is not approved yet (filed in Feb). If I want to travel to my home country with my wife in June, can my wife get stamping done in home country after receiving the approval notice (say Sep) ? Also, how does biometrics work for H4-EAD in such cases ? TIA

Not sure if this has been shared on here, but looks like Bonvoy is updating point redemptions to align with cash value of rooms vs seasonal peaks / hotel categories. So for example a Category 8 hotel in peak season is 100k points/night, regardless of nightly rate (let’s say it’s $2,000/night). I’m speculating you’ll see that jump to something like a 1:100 exchange so that the same hotel room in 2022 will be 200k points / night.

I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼
