I currently have two years remaining on my H1B Visa, no i140 and looking to switch. What are my best options for switching? A lot of companies/firms are hesitating to even interview me though contd..

..contd. I have all the right skills because they are saying filing for GC as soon as I join will be difficult to get approvals on and they are also hesitant with the H1B transfer because of the new administration changes. What are the places that I can apply to and / or what are my options?

Your current company is not filing 140?

Internal approvals are in but there are too many delays and I can’t take a chance by depending on them any longer.

Should an ad agency be able to thoroughly check my references and ask for my entire employment history (including why I left each job) before agreeing on a salary?

I’ve had 7 interviews, met every stakeholder, was initially approached by one of them, who will be my boss. Plus I’ve had great feedback after every interview.

I was laid off from my previous job because of COVID so don’t have a ton of leverage. But that shouldn’t make me powerless. The process just seems like overkill.

Thoughts?
