Heading back to US from India and have a 11 hour layover in Tokyo next week. I already applied and got a transit Visa but am not sure if I want to get out with coronavirus lurking around. Thoughts?

I live here and it’s ok right now. Situation could change within the week though so pay attention. What airport are you at? Makes a big difference for a short layover visit.

Should I wait for 2nd H1B round or switch job?
My application wasn’t picked in 1st round. The high number of selections this year made me think if it’s worth waiting for 2nd round. Next year is my last attempt and my company cannot support beyond H1B if I don’t get it again and I think going to a big company can help with that. Should I just switch if I get an offer before 2nd round?
Maybe someone in the bowl are in similar situation or have some pointers, if so I would like some guidance.

A friend of mine gave me a referral (tech company). I went through the very hard recruiting process (without his help) and ended up receiving a very good offer (+70k TC and stocks/much larger team to lead).
Friend got a referral bonus of 8k but barely mentioned it and I heard it from the HM. How would you feel? I mean he did help me getting a dream job so I shouldn’t bother, right?
Also im curious: would you give the candidate (in this case myself) a piece of the 8k?
