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?

A former Manager reached out about an e-commerce manager role for a relatively young company doing $35M/year. The role manages inventory on the site (20 skus), CRO, and Analytics plus the e-tailers (Amazon). They launched a site redesign and CVR tanked, but from what I gather they have too much of a focus on Paid Social and upper-funnel tactics. They’re hiring for a Demand Gen Analyst/Manager from a different manager. So, the roles report into different people. Question below:
