Hi fam - visa question, I may get a new project for 8 weeks at a new location. Will I need to file an H1 amendment if I am going to be at the client site for less than 30 days? Thanks!
Is it worth it to go into the office/network for project opportunities if you're looking for another job and hoping to leave soon?
First day on the project and the partner takes out an hour to teach me how to configure (1:1). Uncle D rocks!!!
What is the appropriate way to provide your two week notice? Should you have a conversation with your coach or project leads beforehand, or should you just go on your internal company page and hit that resign button and go through whatever processes you are prompted to do? What steps do you take before after submitting your notice as a general practice?
Physically and emotionally draining coast to coast project and getting some health issues. Only been on project for a month, will i be able to leave and be okay finding another project?
Attorneys with the firm often send firm-wide emails advising of in house openings with a corporate client, and solicit recommendations or resumes of qualified candidates. Usually the client contact is a hiring manager for the position. How do I show interest without completely shooting myself in the foot? While I ultimately do want to exit the firm, I also don’t want to be openly broadcasting my intent to leave by telling the firm attorney(s) that I’m interested. Thoughts?
That awkward moment when you type <3 to a client in Skype chat and it auto changes it to ❤️
Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent. For example, company says, “Parents, please share pictures of working from home with your kids during Covid” for a diversity and inclusion project. Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”

Are folks getting RFE on H1 transfer to Big4? My question is specifically because initially your office location is the only one mentioned coz you don’t know what client you will be assigned?
Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.

Building off a thread from a few days ago on how long you waited to consultant an RE. If I am under 35 and have not been trying for 12 months, do I need to spin it to my doctor like I have? It seems bad to not give my doc the real info but I also don’t want to be turned away and I think I’ve heard you have to tell them it’s been 12 mo to get insurance to cover it. Any insight?

A male colleague of mine, who just joined the team this week, has made inappropriate advancements towards me during a team event, touching my leg while talking to me and saying how pretty I am. Worst thing is he’s joining my project too… It’s a no brainer that this is unacceptable, but it’s the first time this happened to me in a work setting and I’m unsure how to handle it. What steps should I take first? Report to HR immediately or speak to my team’s partner first? Any advice is appreciated
NOT A CONFESSION! SEEKING ADVICE HERE I know therapy is useful. How do we get most out of our therapy sessions? How do we track or monitor the progress with therapy? (FYI - I have always been a nerdy kid pressurized by parents. I am finding it a little difficult to maintain and handle friendships. I have realized that dealing with emotions is important. My manager from previous company was toxic. I had a recent break up. My grandfather died last month. Recent events have taken a toll on me)

I took the bar July 2021 and had a screening interview with Fragomen about 2 weeks ago. They seemed interested and open to interviewing as a contract to hire attorney. The individual mentioned to keep them updated on my bad results. I was just wondering if anyone’s been in a similar situation and if any offers came about from such a situation? - from a bar applicant eagerly awaiting results
