Hi all. I’m making a career shift from graphic design to project management. I’ve spent the last 3 months interning as a PM at a small (<15 people) marketing agency; reported to our account manager, worked closely with the co-owners; exceeded expectations. I received a full-time offer: head of PM, reporting to one co-owner, on equal footing with my summer supervisor; $40k base. Looking at local industry standards, average sits around $75k base. Can I reasonably negotiate and ask for $60k base?

I have been working in US for the last 2 years and haven’t had my H1-B picked in my first 2 attempts at the lottery and I have 1 attempt remaining. With the second round of lottery happening this year now in August, would it count as my 3rd attempt or will I still have a chance to file next year since this second round is only to meet the required number of H1-B granted this year? My OPT expires in Feb 2022, so not quite sure about the process if I’m not picked.

Any insights are appreciated!

Hi fishers,

My spouse is currently on H4 visa which is due to expire in 7 months.

I was planning to ask my employer if they can start filing for H4 visa renewal. However, she is also eligible to file for EB2 NIW visa as she has worked as a research analyst in a non profit organization earlier during her 6 year H1B visa.

Could you please advise if both EB2-NIW filing can be applied when H4 visa renewal is already being processed or vice versa?
