Hello fishes, Anyone here working in States? I have a valid stamped H1-B with my previous employer.. looking for next employer who can sponsor me as I resigned with the previous firm and have got another 35 days only before my visa gets invalidated.

Project management, Data Visualization and BI tools, Business Process Improvement and on similar lines...
We are set to fly to India from San Francisco in less than a week. With what is in the news for Omicron, we’re really nervous with all the travel restrictions and cases on the rise. Anyone also traveling to India? Anything we should know? Are we better off postponing? I’ve already had COVID once so I think all this just fuels my anxiety around COVID.
I have a pending I-485 and my case was recently “ready to be scheduled for an interview” about 2 weeks ago. I haven’t traveled to my home country for 3 years and was looking forward to going this December … I have a valid H1b that expires in 2023 and would need to get it stamped. There are appts available in my home country. However I don’t have AP (did not apply due to valid H1b). Is there any risk to my GC application if I travel abroad and get a H1b stamp to re-enter the US?
I just booked my first solo trip - skiing in Aspen - after an year of pretty low lows I figured I might as well give it a try and seek something new and fun and exciting… feeling like a total loser for not having a friend to ask to join me but hoping that this will be a positive experience… if anyone here has tried solo trips before - do you go out to dinners by yourself in the restaurants or just grab stuff for the Airbnb / hotel? Feels a bit strange to eat alone …

My boss is currently working on pushing through a promotion, with a vision to build a team around me for 2022. I haven't outwardly said that I am unhappy, but I know that I don't envision myself here for much longer. I'm in final rounds of interviews & if it works out would be switching industries. Feeling some guilt around knowing how much they are trying to push for me & impact to clients when I might leave soon. Any advice on how to deal w this? Know I can't say much until offer in hand.
Friday night vibes. Have a good weekend everyone
Curious do you guys celebrate Christmas, other holidays? And not looking for religious bashing. Just curious for eg. I am big on Christmas/ holiday spirit. I get a tree, lighting, gifts, sweaters. But similarly I have family who get very mad at wishing Merry Christmas. I am curious where you guy’s heads are at. Any cultural differences between eg black vs Arab vs south Asian Muslims etc.

A male colleague teased me more than our other male peers. I know he meant well but was really annoying. Our project just ended but I can’t shake the feeling that it wasn’t ok. How do you shut down this type of casual gender-based stuff?
After a year of interviewing and applying, I finally got an offer. It is a $2,673 increase in base salary after taking into account of the Dec market adjustment in comp offered by my firm. Not looking for advise of hugs or shoulders here, I just wanted to get the disappointment out of my chest. I’ll continue trying. Thanks. Bye.

Background: My client is an industrial manufacturer in the Midwest. They are the finance arm of a company that makes tractors and construction equipment. Most people in the office dress in a collard shirt or polo with blue jeans. Usually they have branded apparel like sweaters or jackets over top. They're technically white collar but with a blue collar clientele. Question: should I wear my Carhartt jacket into their office next week or stick with a peacoat? I'll be in business casual.
