Hi, I am on my H-1b visa and got an offer from another firm say A, so would need a visa transfer. Although I have another interviews lined up and I am expecting an offer from firm B. Would it be fine if I sign the offer with firm A and let them start the transfer process but once later I get offer from firm B, would it be fine if they start transfer process too and then decide which one to choose? Is that possible?

Hey friends — hoping somebody out there can point me to an excellent Brazilian animation studio. I’ve worked with one before at a previous agency.

Would super appreciate any reccos. Hoping to connect with them again for a new project.
