Peeps, what happened if when you got married to a citizen while in the process of getting work green card? Does the company make you return the fee they pay for the application?
Was talking to this girl ( arranged marriage ) over the past couple of months(jun-sep) and things were progressing towards in the correct direction. During our inital conversion in the early stages, I had mentioned everything about my status (h1b. with early stages of perm,i-140 stage) and told her how she won't be able to get EAD immediately after coming the US) All of sudden she said(oct) she now does not want to come to the US as my status does not allow her to work immediately in the US.
After you get your physical green card, do you have to get like a stamp on your passport as well?
EY Folks - does any one here know who to contact if you need an employee verification letter certifying dates of employment and job responsibilities for green card process? I don’t work for EY anymore and my new employer is asking me to request specific skills to be put on EY’s letter head.
While working from home during COVID-19, do we need to post LCA notice at our home or file H1B amendment?
After receiving Green Card (employer sponsored), is there a minimum period that one needs to work with the sponsoring employer before switching? Asking from a legal/USICS’s point of view, not ethically.
Wondering if anyone had moved to consulting from PhD? Any challenges you foresee in filing green card under EB1A independently. My company is not willing to file for green card at this stage. Any recommendations on lawyers?
Curious question: Selected in this year lottery but for “h1b change of status cap subject FY2021”. I was planning to change company if h1b is approved this year(oct 1). Does this email subject line above means that I have to wait until next year October(2021) in order for my h1b to be officially approve and to change company? 😰
Evaluating an offer in Canada with Avanade base pay - 160k CAD, 6% annual bonus, 10k CAD sign on , location - Toronto. YoE - 11 years, already have a Canadian PR. Currently in the US employed with EY at 150k USD base, but on a H1B visa, GC EB3 PD 2019. Worth it? Avanade folks?
Anyone here on marriage-based green card? How long did it take for you to get your EAD renewal? (From OPT to MBGC)
Do we need to file for a new H1B amendment or LCA if I am going to be starting on a new client? Given that we are all WFH and there’s no need to be at the client site anymore ?
My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
Folks, I am on a work visa in the US and can legally work for one one employer. I am about to open a business and was thinking if I can register the company in my home country - is that allowed?
Does Big4 hire ACCA individuals from international countries (they will not need visa sponsorship and would be legally authorized to work in USA).
I got the h1b lottery last year but haven’t got it stamped in my home country yet ( have been in the states this whole time). With this EO, can i still go back and get the stamp and come back? Sorry if this has been asked before, i wasn’t able to find it.
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) 🙏🏻
Has anyone left big law for a boutique and then decided to go back? What was your interview experience? Any advice how to sell?
Can you negotiate your time in the company? What I mean is say 401k vesting / matching happens in two year or vacation increases a week for someone with 3 years can I be credited with a year served in the system so that I can vest faster. I understand everything is in a system, so can they do a plus one to my count? I am doing this in case they come in at the low end of salary and can't raise salary. Trying to think of non monetary low monetary benefits to close gap
I’ve seen a lot of post on FB about BCG Platinion that lean to the negative side. I am being approached by a recruiter for a position in Europe. Anyone willing to provide more detail on their experience? Maybe willing to chat? I’m also curious if I should be pushing for principal. They mention PL, but that seems like a step down. Thanks, fam!

Hi everyone When looking to exit consulting at the Manager/SM level into PE, where/how did you source potential opportunities? Is it best to reach out to a small set of headhunting firms, or internal recommendations from friends in industry, or actually just going through the 'external process' of the fund (e.g. standard website-based application process). Any thoughts welcome!
Men’s hair style/ facial hair, and interviewing at Big4 poll: 1. Ok to have longer hair 2. Only medium/short hair is professional 3. Trimmed beard & mustache ok 4. Only mustache ok 5. Long beards ok 6. Clean shaven only 7. Hair style/facial hair have no relevance
What’s general turnaround time from final candidate interview to decision / offer? Friend I referred for a SD role has gone through the process (2 Partner interviews, 1 SD interview) with the last interview occurring about two weeks ago. She hasn’t heard anything from HR and HR hasn’t responded to her emails asking on status. Not sure if that’s par for the course or an indication she got dinged.
I think my firm is going to be moving towards global flexibility regarding work from home. They won't force us to live in certain cities with offices. Where in the US is there a beach or beach town that gets all four seasons? Is such a thing possible? I love the ocean, but Fall is my favorite season.
Just wondering if this triple dip would work: Book Marriott hotel through United MileagePlus Shopping giving 1 mile per $, Marriott points for stay and 6 points per $ for using Bonvoy Brilliant card?
Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent. For example, company says, “Parents, please share pictures of working from home with your kids during Covid” for a diversity and inclusion project. Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”
