Background - Got my H1B approved (Consular) this Aug. Am already on OPT with 2 year STEM extension. I recently cleared the cut off for Canada PR. Does it make sense to go ahead and secure the PR? (How trustworthy is US going to be for already approved H1B?) Long term goal - back to home country in 5 years (hopefully)
If my h1b transfer got approved, can I travel internationally (home) after quitting and before starting the new job to get visa stamped? I’ve not gotten a visa stamp yet and thinking about a month before coming back to the US. Anyone done similar?
Hello (again!), my H1B petition was approved on Friday (yaaayyy!!!!) … I’m coming in from Canada on a Canadian passport so don’t need an embassy appt/visa stamp. Does anyone know what paperwork I need at the POE and how long it takes to get them? I’ll ask my attorney Monday but just impatient!
Did any of you file your H1B petition through consular this year or previous? How was your experience?
I am sure I am not the first one asking this question on this forum. I moved from Deloitte US to Deloitte Canada a few months ago due to visa issues. I want to move back to the US.

I have to go for visa stamping in India. Which consulate has low administrative backlog? My application is likely to go in administrative processing as the consulate may ask meto go for a medical exam

Is EY still sponsoring H1b?
Can a company still apply for the H1B for an employee if the employee is a leave of absence?
Advice needed: I’m a SR CW looking for my next move. After hours and hours of applying and shuffling through job postings, I’m intrigued by the possibility of making a move to UX writing. My current company offers an education stipend that I could use towards an online course. After much research there are several courses that offer an “industry recognized certification”. So my question is, what’s the ROI on earning this certification? Should I go for it or just learn UX on the fly?

During the school year last year many things were different because of Covid. One thing that was unique was that we could wear anything we wanted, of course as long as it was appropriate. Was this the case at your school, and do you think it will be difficult getting teachers to “dress up” again? Curious?
