I wouldn’t mention it. If they ask about an employment gap, you’ve been job searching during a pandemic. Tough times. No more no less

So what’s happening with your h1b and do you have enough time to find a new employer and get it transferred within the time limit? That is the major hang up

Unfortunately I have no idea. I thought you needed a valid h1b to stay and work in the u.s... hence why your last company filed you one even though you had an I-140. Hope you do some good research to make sure you can stay and work legally. But this whole immigration is going to be a bother in the job search esp in this environment

Never

I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month.
