Was wondering if anyone has experience making a switch to a consulting firm in London from the US? I've been in consulting for 4+ years and am currently at a boutique strategy firm. Is it easy to find a gig in London/get visa sponsorship? Where to begin to look?

I’ve seen mostly internal transfers but just be prepared to take a paycut. London is a bit unfair like that - low salaries and a very high COL

As I see there are many young parents in this group, need some valuable advice.. I and my partner have been dating since 2019 and we recently (in Feb'22) got married in India. Yesterday we found out about our pregnancy (unexpected) and we were not mentally ready for this yet. We are both working and on H1 visa in the same city and live together, she is 29 and I am 28 years old. Both our parents live in India. We are still contemplating if we should go ahead. <contd.>


Am I mad to follow love instead of money? Context: 24 years old, got a great job as a commodity broker, been doing it one year now and bonus has grown substantially every quarter. Long term girlfriend (3 years) is moving to Australia in October, as of right now she thinks I am going with her. A large % of my social circle are also going. My company will probably not relocate me - our presence is tiny in Oz, meaning I can only get a working holiday visa (temp jobs). Am I mad to move for love?


Currently on OPT with expired visa. Can I go to Canada for the holidays and re-enter? What would I need?
