I've seen folks around here ask for referrals to companies. I'm looking for a referral to KPMG's Data & Analytics practice at an equivalent level to EY manager (currently S3 here on track for promotion this upcoming year).

I specialize in AI & ML and my differentiator is being able to effectively translate between executives and data scientists.

Any firm in the US sponsoring visa now for consulting jobs? I'm a CPA with a total of 5 YOE, 2 of which is in consulting. If someone could refer me that would be awesome. Otherwise, any inputs/comments are welcome!
