First Day of Work in America ?

Some of you may have been students moving from F1 visa to H1B Visa, while some of you may be completely new to the country and starting to work in America…It can be quite a bit on your nerves, if you have moved to US recently to work here….There is nothing to worry, US is a fantastic place to work…I love the work culture in America…I have lived and worked in different parts of the world and I can tell you that US is definitely a much better to work than other parts of the world…

    Hi Friends,
    I was contacted by HeightsIT.com from US (Houston) saying they are going to file my H1b and I need to pay some fee. Anyone having details about this company? Is it trustworthy ?

    Hi, My husband’s petition is applied by India Employer.He got 221g blue slip on 14th Nov 2014 for H1b stamping , by asking client letter and SOW form to submit electronically.Now he got only SOW and the client is not willing to give letter .Can he submit only SOW and proceed further .

    Your suggestion is most appreciated.

    Hello everyone,
    It was a bumpy ride since the day we filed for the h1b. We kept praying for this visa and asked God to help us in this. We received RFE in June 2014 for which the employer replied in July 2014 and our petition was approved in Aug 2014. After receiving the documents we went for an interview and were served with 221g white slip and all of our documents and passport was returned, it was very depressing experience. Attorney sent the required documents to the email address given on 221g and within a week we were asked to submit our passports, and surprisingly our visa was issued the very next working day. Well, it was a bumpy ride but in this journey we kept our faith on God and his ways. All glory and honor to Jesus our savior.
    I congratulate everyone on getting the visa. And would wish all the best to everyone who are waiting.

Finally I got approved this year. I been in US for pretty much about 6+ years and finally in H1 B after 6 years. I did my MS in US and started working on F1 and gone through all stages in my life. I wish everyone who is still waiting for H1 and I hope everybody gets their dream fulfilled.
