The current practice leadership mentioned I am not a high performer and will not sponsor green card application. Should I start to look for other jobs?
Is anyone freaking out about the new H1B rules?
Hey Fishes, any clue when the nominations for H1B will start in USI and what's the procedure for the same?
On my H1B approval notice the expiration date is in August. Any idea why I’m losing out on more than a month? I can’t seem to draw any connections
Hello All, I am based in India with 11 years of experience as Generalist HR/HRBP and have lead HR teams. I'm now looking for positions in Europe or Canada with Visa sponsorship. I have worked in both startup and MNC and can contribute largely to any organization. Any recommendations?
If you submitted an H1-B application for this year's lottery, does it remain active through all subsequent lotteries this year? Specifically, does the submission of an I-485 under the family-based green card process lead the H1-B application to be withdrawn / not considered for any lotteries after the I-485 receipt date? Thanks!
Any US citizens sponsor GC for senior citizen parents or relatives? Process looks straight forward. What are the approval timelines? What about health insurance premiums when they get GC? Any insights? Thanks! https://www.path2usa.com/sponsoring-green-card-for-parents
Desi fish - need some help. Recently lost my job. Is my best alternative to take on a consultancy job or go back to India and find the right job to return? I have i140 approved and my H1b has 2.5 years more
I am on h1b and need a stamp on my visa. My i94 has expired. Can I go to Mexico / Canada to stamp (I don't have a tourist visa of either of those countries) or is going to India the only option?
I have an offer from Deloitte. How’s Deloitte in sponsoring green card for its employees? I have been told you need to complete a year of employment before Deloitte begins your green card processing (earlier it was 2 years and have been recently modified). Can someone share their experience. I just wanted to make sure they do what they say. Deloitte
Can another company start working on your H1B visa process without your current employer (one that has sponsored your L-1) being aware of it?
EY folks on a h1b visa, if you are working remotely for a couple of months from a relatives place, have you informed EY law ? Was visiting my relatives in a different state and decided to stay here for a while. Thinking what issues might arise if I do this
For those of you who has an H1B - how did you obtain yours? Did company agree upfront to sponsor? How do you find companies who would be willing to issue H1B? Any input would be appreciated
Anyone know all-in costs for Fragomen to process an EB2 or 3 for ROW filer? Got an offer includes GC Day 1 but the company has never done one, so I’d basically be leading the process with the lawyers. I got a referral to a smaller firm that quoted ~20k incl. gov’t fees. Interested in going with Fragomen given they did my H1B and started my GC with my current Firm.
If you’re on H1B, can you work outside the country for more than 30 days without any issues. Or do you need to file anything with USCIS given your work location has changed from your what’s on your H1B
Putting an offer on a condo, do the folks on H1B include any visa clause for out? How do you factor for contingency when your visa is pending the regular renewal/ extension considering i140 is approved ?
Just for stats: how many times did your firm apply for your H1B lottery before it got picked and approved? I’ll go first - 5 times and still hasn’t been picked ever 😅
Question for the folks here that have recently gone through the visitor visa process for India: what am I missing?? I created the visa application form online and submitted it back in October for my dad and younger brother but is there a timeframe for when we hear back? The site is a cluster and I can’t figure out what I need to do in the meantime or do I just wait to hear back? Is there a step by step somewhere that someone can lead me to? Thank you and I owe you one!
Just got invited to United Global Services. Super excited and kind of depressed at the same time.
I accepted an interview calendar invite but I keep getting automatic replies from the system saying I didn’t accept the invite and it will get cancelled if I don’t accept soon. I reached out to the recruiter and he’s out of office for a while, should I try to find the hiring managers contact and reach out?
Just got to my biglaw firm about a month ago and I’ve already seen 6 people depart. Red flag or is this normal in biglaw?

How much stock do you put on benefits? I have two offers with stark differences in benefits. Job 1: role I want, but benefit sucks (2 weeks paternity leave, 20% coinsurance). Job 2: role is okay but higher level and great benefits (16 weeks paternity, 0% coinsurance, 5 more days of vacation). Total comp is the same though. I wonder if I should just focus on role but Job 2 is a large company, so I can move around after 2-3 years I’d expect. Thoughts?

It's funny that there have been so many Uber haters who relentlessly criticized the company for making taxi drivers go broke...yet I am not hearing any staunch WFH supporters worry about tens of thousands of facilities management and maintenance professionals whose jobs will all but disappear if people do not return to their offices.
