Just heard my H1B petition was approved. Visa will be valid starting Oct 1, 2021. I am also scheduled to get promoted in October (unsure of which date exactly). Hypothetically, if I get promoted from Account Coordinator to Account Manager I on Oct 5, after my H1B kicks in on Oct 1, how would this work logistically? Planning on going back to home country and also getting the visa issuance in Dec. Similar experience, anyone? Appreciate your input.
I am joining Big 4. I have limited US work permit and visa, and that’s dependent on my spouse visa. My only best option is to get picked up in H1 lottery, which I believe is somewhat impossible. I want to know what options do I have to continue working here? Shall I go for one year masters program or do I move to some other country? Anyone faced similar situation?
How do you tell if an employer is okay with visa sponsorship on linkedin job posting? Some employers clearly mention that they are okay with this. For the ones that don’t, how do you find this info?

Ladies! Looking for advice I've been waiting for my visa to move to the states for over a year already, and it seems it may be another year. I live in Toronto where we're pretty much on lockdown, sports are out, I've been really depressed for years and have nobody here anymore (largely why I wanted to move and meet new people) How would you spend this year without travelling or meeting new people if you were me? (I'm still working)

Lost sense of maximizing points/mileage value for int’l flights. Why is Detla redeeming so much more for some routes than Chase UR and even other partner airlines? E.g. non-stop economy btw Detroit-Seoul // Delta redeeming 160k on its own route while Chase UR 123k & Korean Air 80k for same route (code share)... I get it all depends on timing but still weird directly using Delta Skymiles on its own Delta route is more expensive than going through other methods....

2 YOE and haven’t done or seen anything work related that has really inspired or excited me outside of getting a paycheck. 10 YOE feels like an eternity from now but I’m sure it’ll sneak up on me and that’s scary. Am I crazy to just chase 💰💰 for a few years? When did you feel like you knew what you wanted to do for work / in your career? What if it’s just relatively mediocre pay in consulting like…forever?
Email/Skype pet peeves?
Using Marriott Bonvoy points for a stay for my parents: I have in the past used my SPG points and added my father’s name (by teaching out to the hotel after booking) to the reservation. It worked just fine and they even benefits fronm my Elite benefits (free breakfast). Just booked a stay for February for them and read the following “Hotel rewards e-certificates can only be requested by a Marriott Rewards member for a reservation in that member's own name. E-certificates will not be honored”
I’ve have had a mix of Chase Sapphire, Marriott and Amex cards for a while - since I traveled for work. Now moving to a remote role- focusing on 2 nice international family trips a year. Is it worth moving everything to an airline miles card - getting more bang for your buck with business class upgrades? Or how should I think about my CC strategy?

So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
