I have 2 years currently remaining on my H1B and don’t have I140 yet. Am planning to start applying to places, but I see a lot of posts about how companies are saying no to folks who have contd..

And even if they offer you a job they will terribly low ball you on salary and designation..I would suggest you get your i140 first..

..less time on their visa. This is scaring me because I really need to switch. Am miserable at my current workplace and want to switch. I have some interviews also lined up, but I read about companies saying no, even after extending a job offer initially. That is so strange. Which firms do you think will still consider extending me an offer and going through with it? Any insights, based on your (or someone you know) experience would be helpful. Thank You!

Sorry for u..but put your head down and get that I140.

OP - You got couple of options 1) assuming you have 2 years left out of 6 years of h1-b, I would suggest to hang in there unless you are on the verge of getting fired.. even if you find a job offer new employer won’t be able to get extension beyond 2 years as you don’t have approved LCA for perm. My understanding is to file an extension on i-140 you need to have approved perm LCA atleast 12 months prior to filing an extension. So if you move to new company you are running against the time as new company won’t start GC immediately unless the company desperately needs you 2) Opt for desi consulting, there are some legit desi consulting firms who will pickup your h1-b specially if you are in NYC, CHICAGO or BAY area
