Hi fishes, I'm from India and having 4+ years of experience in Application/Product Support Engineering in Amazon India. My current level is L4 and can't move internally through Amazon.

Hi all, while booking an appointment for US VISA, somehow my Passport number is incorrectly logged and submitted. (It's missing a letter). All other details like Name, Address, DS160 numbers are all correct. I've already paid the fee... Will it be a challenge? Any way I can correct it now?
Getting ready to do hard pull on credit report for mortgage application. My better half is in 700-719 range (lenders will take lower score between us). What do we think is the better option to increase her score—increase credit line at current credit card, apply for new credit card, or do nothing? Thanks in advance!
On my notice period and bench for the next couple of weeks. With wfh I'm basically doing whatever I want (running, reading, swimming, day trips nearby) during work hours. Can't travel abroad cos UK visa is being issued. Any activities/places I should visit in London that get jam packed during the weekend?
Just learnt FIL is in ICU under observation after contracting Covid. He has other pre existing conditions. Just became citizens this year and haven’t gotten around to doing the OCI card yet.

Hello! For those of you in the US on visas, obviously we are tied to our visa and not allowed to work for other companies or start a business, but what about investing? Are we able to invest in the stock market or is that not allowed with being on a work visa? I am new to this. Will be speaking to an accountant shortly

Has anyone noticed a lag between the new expense system when it says a report was paid vs. when it posts to Amex?
Corp Amex due date is Jan 25 but I have not been completely reimbursed for the amount due. Do I just wait and let it roll past the due date or pay out of pocket and get reimbursed later?
Just got my Chase Reserve approved. Does chase allow you to downgrade your preferred within the first year?

Experienced hire/Senior Analyst leaving Accenture after a year. Moving to a position with a client for 2x salary and 20% more bonus. No MBA, no PMP just your typical veteran who is seasoned in GSD. Just wanted to share for the veteran dudes and dudettes. There are others out there who recognize what you are capable of. Don’t settle for what the LinkedIn talking heads tell you or recruiters who only recruited when they were in service.

Really want to exit consulting, but all I have experience in is making PowerPoint slides for our cloud practice… Where should I look to apply? I don’t actually have any tech skills (besides the aws ccp) but I really want to leave consulting for something with better wlb.
I put my notice in and my boss is giving me lots of new work/projects to work on and expecting me to be responsive past standard working hours. AITA for setting boundaries and saying no to new work and focusing on wrapping things up instead? I got a new job because I was severely bullied by a member of leadership and it has had a negative impact on my mental health where I’m now on medications and seeing a therapist.
ZS fish - when applying, do you actually provide your salary history from the past 5 years? The application says proof of income will be requested during the interview process. This seems very odd so looking for guidance. Thanks!
