Hello fishes, Do we need to update our address on H-1B approved petition and PERM (still in initial PWD stages) if changing our resedential address within a 5 mile radius? Would be great if any immigration lawyers could weigh in.
This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
Waiting for lawyers to file H1b transfer is so irritating. I don’t have much motivation to work 😔 folks who are on visa and switched jobs, how did you deal with the waiting period?
I am H1B and I’ve started my GC process. my husband is also on H1B but won’t get his GC sponsored until his next job. What happens if he has started the GC process but by then his H1B had run out? Can he still work while it’s pending with an application for EAD? Can he work as H4 under my H1B till I get my GC issued?
In case H1B gets denied (I hope that doesn’t happen), what countries have you considered moving to besides Canada. Indian national and pending transfer to MBB if that helps.
Any recent H1B transfers to EY? I want to know the timeline, overall experience and outcomes.
While switching companies, can we get the H1B visa transfer approved and still work for the old company for 2 months?
My current opt expires on 07/02, my h1B petition was filed on 06/16. My firm wants receipt notice for I-9 verification or I-20 and DSO won’t be able generate new I-20 without receipt notice. If I can’t submit one of these before 07/02 they are stating that I need to separate from firm. Can someone advise me what I can do?
I've written on my resume that I'm a US Citizen (literally the first thing on the next line after my name) but literally every HR person I've spoken to recently immediately asks if I need visa sponsorship. Is it just something that ATS doesn't screen for usually? I'd hope a human is actually reading my resume. I don't want to be that person that says "yes, it's on my resume" lol
Hi peeps my stem opt is expiring on 6/30/2021. If I am in the cap waitlist can I still continue working till my h1b is rejected? Thanks in advance 😊
Fellow fishes, has anyone recently gone to India for H1B stamping and used Dropbox service. If you could please shed some light on the processing times and overall process that would be very helpful!
I filed prevailing wages in June this year under H1b. When would I expect to receive response from DOL?
Anyone has experience working for Axtria? I have just spoken to the HR who sent me an immigration question which is extensive including asking for my pay stubs and W2’s , certificates etc even before the start of the process. I feel that this is quite invasive before the first round
Received a denial on my H1B RFE (not extension); PwC law says they did not receive a reason for the denial; is this possible? I have only 1 more attempt at the H1B - would it help for me to move?
Thinking about transferring from EY US to EY London. I'm a staff 1 and unfortunately didn't win the visa lottery. Any thoughts of how hard it is to transfer?
Hi folks, I was on H1B visa and moved out of US 2 years back. I should have 3 years left on my H1B visa. I am planning to go back to the US now. Do I need to apply for H1B lottery? Or can I reuse my previous H1B. FYI - I work for a different employer now.
Which are cheaper but decent universities for online MIS or CIS course or MBA? I already have a non computer masters from a top school but want to get this degree to avoid visa transfer problems.

On an E2 with current company and have an offer from another firm and now thinking they logistics. Should I hold off quitting until the new E2 is successful just in case it’s denied? Will applying for a second visa flag a problem?

Mamas, have you asked for a roll off or less responsibilities on your current project due to pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness? My client is so critical and demanding it’s caused me to have stress hives and panic attacks. I don’t think I can do my role well pregnant and don’t want the stress to cause the baby harm.
Per diem dinner allowance for Orlando at KPMG seems low at $33. That city has become much more expensive especially since it’s essentially a resort town. What do other firms allow?
What are some of your go to resources -books, courses, blogs, to learn about investing -fundamentals and technical analysis.
Met with my boss today and was told “well you’re way better at your job than we expected...so keep doing that and just that. We might be able to have some more interesting work for you to do in 2-3 years”. Meanwhile...I am BORED TO TEARS!!!!!! And it’s tempting to quit, but I make more money than both of my parents combined EVER have, we had zero layoffs during COVID, and I really do love the people. At the end of the day...I guess I’m just hear to vent and to see if I’m the ONLY one.
Covid made me realize____ Me: other than work, family, friends, I have no purpose. I have no personal goals. What is the purpose of my life? Single 45 F 🐠 no kids.
it feels like every survey about working from home is (poorly) designed to answer the useless question "would you rather work from home or from the office." I submit that the set of people who prefers to have only one of those two options, always and forever, is the null set. which means it DOES NOT MATTER because the correct answer is always going to be "make both possible." you're welcome, HR departments everywhere.
Have one night in wine country without accommodations planned. Anyone have insights / experience in Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance vis a vis Westin Verasa Napa?
I have my annual review this week and I don’t think we are getting bonuses or salary increases. How do you tell your boss that you are getting burned out and need to reduce your workload without sounding whiny? I’m a hard worker and I don’t say no to anything that is asked of me, but I’m starting to burn out from that. I have already tried to have the soft conversation about needing my weekends off to decompress, but there are clearly no boundaries.
$45 an hour freelance job that might last 1-12 months, or $25 an hour full time position? (I have to stay a year at the full time place to make it 25, there's a bonus. Without the bonus its 20/hr)
