Being a foreign worker on H1b who recently rolled off from the project and currently on beach, what are my options in these times of impending slowdown?

I want to buy a $600 ticket but only have 40,000 Amex points. What’s my best option? Could I use points but have an Amex charge of $200? Not 100% sure how that works or f it messes with expenses
Chase Freedom vs Freedom Unlimited for everyday spend? Plan to transfer points to my CSR. Non traveling consultant
I left the US last year and now I'm thinking about going back there.. I used only 2.5 years of my H1B. What are my chances of getting a job in the US while I am physically not present in there? How should I communicate that "I'm not on h1b right now but I'm eligible for transfer" to recruiters ? Would appreciate any advice
Can you apply for a green card to work in the US to sponsor yourself without an employer sponsored work visa (TN or otherwise)?
Forget Glassdoor. The government publicly reports the salaries of H1B visa employees. http://h1bdata.info/index.php?em=&job=&city=&year=All
On H1b. Planning to quit in September and then attend a friends wedding and leave the states within 60 days. Can’t take this job anymore and not really sure if it’s even worth it. Any tips or thoughts?
I just moved from F1 to H1B. So far I’ve been filling my taxes in India as a resident and have not converted any of my bank accounts. When does my status switch to non resident in India? When it does switch, what are the steps I need to take? I have FDs through my bank and stock and MF investments through a broker.
D fishes. If you didn’t get selected in H1B lottery, and this was your last attempt, worry not. I too sailed on the same boat. Now I am on day 1 CPT. There is a brighter side to this. IM/email me for more details.

I have seen multiple posts of people complaining about the US immigration policies. Attitudes and laws around U.S. immigration have vacillated between welcoming and restrictive since the beginning.
Anyone know about the hierarchy at Visa?
I’m waiting on my h1b transfer. If I got rfe, I really want to use the waiting time to visit my family (have more than enough pto left with my current employer). Anyone know if it’s possible to use my old I797 to get VISA stamp? Then putting notice after I’m back.
I tend to do a lot of actual work, talk only "cut to the chase" points, and I hate the lengthy useless talking and no structure type of person. Very delivery focused. Will I ever be successful?
Just wanted you guys to know that this bowl is a godsend! I posted a while back about failing HR screenings. Everyone gave really helpful advice that I've implemented and I've been able to make it to multiple final round interviews

Hi all! I’m talking to someone tomorrow on the team for a role I’m super keen on. Luckily enough (not sure If this is good timing) when I reached out to them a few weeks ago and confirmed the time for us to connect, a job in their area opened up a few days later. I’m super keen on trying to push my application and ask about the role (already applied but without a referral :() How would you approach the conversation? I’m a little intimidated since it’s at a hot tech company and they’re MBB.
Making the jump to industry. I’ve got 3 final interviews either later this week or early next week, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to give my 2 week’s notice sometime next week. Problem is I have a vacation scheduled for the week of August 23rd that was approved by my company & the companies I’m interviewing with said I can start after. If I only have a week and a half of work before my vacation starts, do I offer to work the week after my vacation before leaving? Or just work until vacation?

Hi Desi Fam, I noticed a difference between the general consulting bowl vs desi bowl where almost everyone in the desi community is for the covid vaccination. What are some key reasons for the difference from the general US population where a large % are anti-vaxers. Thoughtful answers only (and not answers like we are smarter).
I moved to US 5 years ago. Intra company transfer. I am fairly successful here however sometimes feel guilty of taking away American job. Why do I feel this? I have unique skill set. I think I deserve it. But stigma of offshor-ing American jobs (conservative media talking points) makes me sad. Thoughts? P.S. I make a lot of money so cheap resource rhetorics don’t apply to me.

What was your average single day shoot production bids $ prior to COVID? And for those of you who have resumed shooting, what is it now?￼
I’m working for a big 4 and have a suggestion to encourage folks to return to the office. I find I’m more productive overall if I spend a few days a week in the actual home office. However…I don’t want to pay a couple hundred a month on parking. How about reimbursing parking? That would be a valuable perk…versus free bagels and garbage food.
