If my current H1B visa stamp on passport is approved for 3 years under my current employer name, do I have to go to the consulate again for a new visa stamp if I change employer?

Visa stamp = right to enter and exit if you have a valid petition Petition = right to stay and work So, you can even continue staying in the US with an expired stamp, so long as your petition is valid.

I just found out that you don’t have to until your visa has validity just carry your new 797

But if I leave the US after the job change I will have to get a new stamp from the consulate right?

No. Don't need a new stamp until the current one expires. I changed jobs in July2019. Current Visa valid till September 2020. New petition valid till Jan 2023. Traveled in December 2019 and re-entered on existing stamp. Need to carry New i-797 though

Graduated 2018 with STEM major/extension. 3 years working, and in 2 of those years USCIS ran 2 H1B lotteries. So 5 lotteries and I still didn’t get it. The chance of not getting it 5x in a row is ~25% chance ^ 5 = 0.097%. Insane. Also, I don’t know anyone who graduated earlier than 2018 and did not get it on the first three tries.

I'm a young analyst in ACN with 1+ year of experience in cloud migrations.

I don't like to work in cloud service and also I don't like the banking sector. For this reason, I requested to be moved in another service in ACN. My manager said ok, but this probably takes several months. Next monday I have to provide a feedback to the other company. What would you do?

Serious question: Why’d we have to migrate our network logins to FCB Health in addition to our emails? Couldn’t we have just started listing our emails as “@fcbhealth” but logging in as “@FCB”? Our old emails instantly forward to our current ones, so I don’t see why it couldn’t be the other way.
