My stem OPT ends 2022 but I will be transitioning to H1b this October. My firm requires I complete the last page of the I-983 form but I am not sure what date range to put since I still have 12 months on the stem opt. Does any one know if I should put the range to end September 31st or next year when the stem opt actually expires?
Qq - I recently noticed that I am missing an old (not current) i-797 approval notice. I have the scanned (soft) copy but not the original notice. Do we need older notices for any future filings (e.g. green card, AOS filing, naturalization etc.)? Wondering if I should order a copy or not needed.
Anyone successfully convinced a US employer to sponsor your H1B when the company traditionally does not sponsor? How do you do that?
Does anyone know if ZS Associates sponsors H1B transfer or GC? Their website says no and the online application portal screens out those who need sponsorship but then I also have heard of cases with H1B sponsorship so not too sure. Thanks!

Need advice; current employer won’t file h1b extension and visa expires in 3/19. Got an offer and company filed h1b yesterday. Should I join based on receipt or wait for approval?
McKinsey offer states that they will file Green Card after 18months at the firm. Thats a long time, I am on H1B with approved i-140. Has anyone able to negotiate this. They seem pretty firm about it.
Am I allowed to be unemployed and stay in the US if my new employer has an h1b petition in process? Like I quit before my h1b change of employer approval is complete? Thank you!
Ugh, my downgraded Amex green card arrived today. Also t-minus 17 days until the new $60 mobile reimbursement. $1200+ in comp I will miss!
[Advice needed] I have a job offer from US based company and they are willing to sponsor me on L1. However with new proclamation, it looks like the process will further be delayed by 3 months and I can get a valid work visa by June/July at best. Alternatively I have an option of relocating to Canada as well. This process should be fairly quick and easy. My question is - 1. Should I opt for Canada or wait for US Visa? 2. Are there any chances that Biden administration overturns this. TIA
I’m a foreigner on an L1 Visa about to start the green card process, anyone been through the process? Any tips/warnings I should be aware of? And what sort of timeline should I plan for?
My H1B max is in June 2022. I have not yet gotten the i140. I want to change my job now. How much time do I have? I am thinking if I could be transferred before June 2021 and the new company starts green card immediately (basically that would be a must), a new job is possible. Am I missing something?

‘‘‘Tis the season for the layoffs
All this news of layoffs is so depressing. I’m blaming holding company greed. This forces agencies to be ruthless and squeeze employees until they are in the brink of nervous breakdowns.
