I left the US last year and now I'm thinking about going back there.. I used only 2.5 years of my H1B. What are my chances of getting a job in the US while I am physically not present in there? How should I communicate that "I'm not on h1b right now but I'm eligible for transfer" to recruiters ? Would appreciate any advice

Hiring season is 🔥right now. I think most employers would consider you. Use it to your advantage. Let me know if you need a referral at KPMG. We can discuss.

AT1- I work as a manager in tech consulting for reg C and fincrimes. Feel free to dm me in case you want to talk :)

Just apply for job and mention that you had a previously approved H-1B which will need to be transferred to the new company before you can start working. Transfer process can be completed within 15 calendar days if you do premium processing. Consular processing of your H-1B visa stamp is another matter. How quickly that will conclude depends on your country of citizenship. If pandemic conditions are not severe, maybe you can get an appointment without requesting an emergency interview. It can all be done though.

Senior Consultant...most recruiters welcome upfront and direct communication from what I've seen so far (I've only started looking quite recently for US jobs) I think transferable is probably easier than a fresh application. Good luck!

I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
