Originally from India, I moved to the US to complete my B.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon in Pennsylvania. Following graduation, I joined a US-based technology company as a Platform Engineer. With hopes of continuing to work with my company after my OPT expired, I applied for the H-1B visa lottery every year, and unfortunately, I was still unsuccessful on my final attempt. Fortunately, my current company and I reached out to MobSquad and they were more than happy to help.
The entire immigration, relocation, and onboarding processes with MobSquad were seamless. I was very impressed with how, even during the pandemic when all embassies were closed, they were able to speed up the visa process, which was essential in ensuring no interruptions to my work.
Having started the process with MobSquad early, they helped me with all the applications and documentation required to apply for my Canadian Work Visa. I was quite worried about moving to Canada as I was moving alone, but the team was great to work with and made sure I felt comfortable and supported. They went above and beyond to help me find housing and connected me with a contact at the bank to set up a Canadian bank account before I arrived.
I am now settled in Vancouver and really enjoying exploring the city. Canada and the US are very similar, making the transition that much smoother.
