Feeling really burnt out, on H1B. Can't just take a break from work, also no utilization in this environment is detrimental. What can I do?

Start lining up other interviews. If laid off can get a 6 month tourist visa. Make sure immigration documents are together and passport is not expired. Breathe

If you can afford it, you can take a leave of absence. Your H1B stops ticking at that time as well, I think but better clarify that with the lawyers

Graduated 2018 with STEM major/extension. 3 years working, and in 2 of those years USCIS ran 2 H1B lotteries. So 5 lotteries and I still didn’t get it.

The chance of not getting it 5x in a row is ~25% chance ^ 5 = 0.097%. Insane. Also, I don’t know anyone who graduated earlier than 2018 and did not get it on the first three tries.
