If your firm has a business immigration practice, you can try to get experience in a few cases, then try to leverage that if looking for a new opportunity. It’s typically much more difficult to make a move into a new practice area with zero experience, but not impossible. I would anticipate classing back to as much as a first year of transitioning to a new practice with little to no experience. Good luck with your search!

I will graduate in May 2021. Can I still enrol for H1B cap in March 2021? And if I don’t get picked, can I still work on the OPT allowance I get and apply again in 2022?

Hi, Chinese citizen. Have an I-140 approved for more than 180 days. H1B on 5th year now. Heard that if I find a new employer, the new employer can do 3-year h1b extension using my current employer’s I-140. Question is, does this new job have to be similar to my current job for the extension after six years?

I’m a 2nd year business analyst on H1B looking for opportunities. About to be laid off and struggling to get any leads or referrals. I’ve worked with Lifesciences and Tech clients and lead workstreams to collaborate with director level leadership for implementation projects. I also have experience in change management and project management roles. Would anyone be willing to help in this situation? I’m looking for opportunities in Bay Area that sponsor visa.

I recently got my H1B approved. The effective start date is Oct 1. What happens to my visa status if I get laid off before Oct 1? My status before H1B approval was Stem OPT.

As a European H1B holder and as things are the way they are right now could I go to say Dominican Republic or Brazil or Jamaica for a week and come back? Been closed in my apartment in NY since March and can’t really go back home to Europe for a bit and come back since I’m not a permanent resident here.
