    Don’t apply for eb1. That’s dishonest thing to do as TPM.

    Don't be fooled by the importance of your gross salary. The net salary you'll actually cash on your bank account will only be ~55% of the gross.

      The rest are called taxes and benefits. It is a familiar concept in India.

    Apartment locators are free in Seattle. The cost of living is horrendous but, you can alleviate a little of that burden by living in the suburban areas of the city. Most places want first, last and one month’s security deposit to move in.

    Also, if you look on thirteenth and Denny on Capitol Hill in Seattle there is a white apartment building on the corner and it is managed by a woman named Sylvia. She will approve your application to rent for 30$, no questions asked. She manages several properties. PM me if you want real insight. I lived there for 10 years and just moved a few months ago.

    Expect to start doing your own cooking, cleaning, and laundry. I have heard from coworkers that came from India that it is a bit of a rough awakening- low cost labor isn’t common here like it is in India.

    Save save save !!! If things don’t work out goto Canada and retire. You will pay Medicare tax and social security tax which you might not see any benefit of..

    Live on the east side a more friendly and familiar place for the typical foreign IT crowd. I would recommend the Crossroads neighborhood in Bellevue, just look that up. You will find a lot of Indian restaurant and grocery stores. Will make you feel less home sick. Your commute time from Crossroads to Seattle downtown will likely be an hour long.
