If I claimed stimulus bills as a credit on my tax return, does that count as a public charge and affect future H1B or green card applications?
Received an offer to join Facebook as a data scientist. Given the litigation (that just ended) with the PERM issues, is it worth accepting the offer? In 5th year of H1B, approved PERM and i140 with current employer. Priority date in March 2020. Can anyone share any insight/advice?
Indians back in India want H1B & H4-EAD to be abolished. Naturalized Indians don't want immigration. Where should a person with aspirations go? Is it bad to have goals and ambitions with an Indian PP?
I’m on the work visa and was just laid off from tax. I honestly hated the busy seasons in the last year and was so miserable bc I had to stay to keep my status so I can get my GC, which was the biggest goal for years. Never thought I would grow to dislike my job. So the lay-off is a blessing in disguise in a way! The funny thing is, jobs I’ve heard back so far that sponsor the visa are in PA...I think for my well-being I should just go home, or am I too big of a coward for giving up my goal?
For those whose firms sponsor H1B at the analyst level - how common is this? My firm says they don’t do it until the MBA level because of “prevailing wage” issues, but the analyst comp differences aren’t that different that I know of. Appreciate any insights on this!
Received H1B transfer approval email on October 4th, but haven't received physical copy oh I129 till now. Anybody had similar delays?

I was selected in the second round for H1B and was approved with an effective date of October 1. The law firm has not received the physical I797 and I’m very worried about using up my 60 days of unemployment. Does the 60 days of unemployment apply given that it’s an initial H1B?

Need some guidance here: I had my H1b transferred to a new employer recently. I am planning to go to India in December but I am not planning to get my visa stamped as my old h1b stamp is valid till July 2022. Am I risking it too much?
Ladies, I need advice. I’m mid-20s and feeling painfully lost. For most of my younger years, my identity was rooted heavily in my friendships and social life. Graduating college and then obviously the pandemic took a toll on that, I moved home and many of my friends left the city I had lived in pre-covid. Flash forward to the world reopening, I don’t like my job, my friends live all over, I have a nonexistent love life, and I don’t know what to do next
Are Deloitte layoffs over after tomorrow? S&O just let go 10-15% of the work force. More to come?

Should I reach back to the recruiter on decision after I started new job? Would that be a red flag or they see i really like their company? I would join that company if everything's equal but had to start on current role since the other company was dragging feet a but on getting resources for the role. They might still be waiting for approvals for the role...should I just wait for them or keep talking? Last time HR did say to check back later.
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Posted in Big 4 bowl but reposting here: Looking to move into a general Consulting Staff/Business Transformation/Strategy position mid-late 2022. Was eyeing a Summer/Fall 2022 Business Transformation Staff position at EY in particular, but it has dropped off. Any idea of when positions like that will typically open up across most firms? Want to get in early, open to any firm. I do not have an MBA, but I am client facing and work in commercial markets currently. TYIA!
Most posts on here don’t really paint a positive picture of life in the USDC. Is there anyone on here who has had a good experience working in the USDC? Are any of you working in teams or groups in the USDC that seem great to be a part of? Any leaders or groups in the USDC you have heard of that seem to care and are great to work with or for?
Do you have a place where you're able to lock up your stuff in your classroom? I don't and I'm not sure if I should make a big deal about it.
Is it weird/rude to do work during a 2 hour hair appointment (instead of taking the PTO)?
Why isn’t there a public accountants union? At least even at the staff level. These layoffs were handled like a group of unchecked overlords are expected to.
