Applied for H1B with company A, interviewing with company B early May. Does anyone know of the logistics of switching firms (assuming I’m selected in the lottery)? Current status is STEM OPT thru May

I am not 100% sure but I think you would need to get your approval with company A since it’s already filed and then company B can file for transfer.

Your stem opt expires in May of this year? That’ll it challenging because you can’t work beyond may unless you’re selected in the lottery. So both companies A and B are likely to wait for your approval before they extend an offer.

EY2, I’m employed at company A so can stay under cap gap extension

How tough is it to lateral to a larger bank, or to exit into corp dev/strategy at a "large cap" company at the VP-ish level? I'm currently in IB at a smaller MM bank, but kind of trapped until I get my green card which obviously will be a few years. I don't hate my bank/team but I do feel limited by the bank (since obviously reputation/size dictates the deals the bank can win)
