Switch jobs: you give interviews if they are willing to sponsor h1b Process: just like regular h1b except lottery process Hard: depends on employer and immigration firm associated Your call existing h1b is not impacted no matter what unless you inform to your employer and he cancels your h1b. Advice: join new firm only after transfer approval

I’ve been on H1B October 2019, expiring in 2022. I’m kind of clueless as to what happens next. Does my firm start the green card process soon because it’s been almost 2 years (ive heard/read you need to work 2 years before they do that at big 4). What does that entail and how long until the green card comes out after that? And when they renew my H1B for another 3 years is that a guarantee extension and not a lottery like the first one?
