What’s the ideal level of seniority to transition to client side?

Fingers crossed it’s the Sup level lol

Somewhere between the levels of Director and Aged-out.

Mid level IMO. The more senior you are the more it’s not going to be a linear role. An agency director at an agency won’t have the same hands on experience (ie. P&L management) to move over as a director client side.

I moved client side at a Group Director level. I think it really depends on what role you’re looking at client side as to the seniority

Whenever you feel like it, so long as your skills align?

At least AD

Can someone pls share their experience with filing h1b extension after i140 has been approved? Have heard these days the extensions are granted only 6 months to a year depending on the client letter.

OC, you need to chill. There are literally no deadlines in this case right now. Our CMC isn’t until October because the court is so overwhelmed. Your (bogus) “creative” claims aren’t time-sensitive. My client is still trying to recover from the massive hit it took during COVID. And I’m already billing 250+ hour months on other matters because, again, COVID disruptions. Your desire to get docs faster is the LEAST of my priorities, especially when we already gave you a shit ton of data and docs.

I think I made a faux pas during a discussion with a recruiter when asked what my salary expectations were.
