I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
TFW you're stuck for 2 hours at immigration because your work permit expires 2 days before the case ends
I am on H1b and my daughter is American Citizen (Minor) . Is she eligible for stimulus package ?

Does anyone know if people not living/working in the US (no work visa yet and completely international background) can apply to roles within US at Google and google will sponsor them?
Are those of us on H1b/F1 allowed to enroll in community College for any courses? The one near me has a motorcycle training course that waives the skills test for 1/3rd the price of its competitors
If you get laid off as green card holder, do you have to go back to your home country? Can I take contract jobs while searching for full time?
How flexible is Deloitte with the start date because of H1b processing time? I signed the offer mid-may for July 12 because it seemed realistic enough for premium H1b transfer. But the lawyers seem slower than what I was used to and July 12 does not seem likely. Is this going to be a problem?
Quick question. If you have an approved I-140, and want to switch jobs, does the new employer need to restart the green card application for you? How does this work? Thank you!
How strong Immigration team in Deloitte ? Proactive and Response ? Hearing very poor is that true ? Planning to pursue opportunity at D. Please advise
Recent H1B stamping experiences at the Mumbai consulate? Second time stamping (in 5th year of H1B), and not eligible for dropbox. Want to be extra cautious given the current immigration climate...
Current h1b stamp expires Jan 6th 2020 and have an approved petition for the next 3 yrs. Have limited time to get my stamping in December. Can I still reenter without new stamp before the 6th?
I am on H1b & i140 approved. If I leave US & come back after few years: 1. Am I still cap exempt? 2. Getting H1 again is as simple as change of employer ? 3. Do I still retain my priority date ?
Hi Fishes, Have 3 yoe | 5 lpa Tech stack : Devops + python development + aws stack ( development + devops ) Which position pays more SRE / Devops / aws developer for 3 yoe. Please share some salary insights. Thanks
Used to spend all my weekends with this guy I was seeing last year. Things have been so rocky this year, we barely meet. He wants to take some time off and concentrate on himself and being more active before committing to anything. He has literally filled all his weekends with sports and meetups there after. He tells me about everything he does honestly but I can’t help but feel replaced.
How do you tell a recruiter that you are no longer interested in interviewing for a position without burning bridges? I spoke with HR and then the direct manager and realized it may not be a good fit for me. What do I say?
People have been asking me for referrals post COVID and I want to help everyone but I also know that some people won’t be a great fit. Is anyone else facing this? Does it hurt to refer not as strong candidates? I am assuming they will just get rejected?

I don't get the point of getting an MBA. I feel like there's nothing b-school can teach you that you can't teach yourself... and networking is feasible without the help of an overpriced university.
