I’m on an h1b visa and will be switching jobs soon. I was thinking of taking some time off between jobs. Is there a limit that can only take 1 or 2 weeks between my end date and start date? The new job would be applying for my H1b transfer and I’d only leave once my transfer is approved.

If you quit after your new H1b is approved, you are good. There should be no legal risks that way. you can just simply negotiate a start date for your new job to get yourself some days off. Hope that helps!

Saw during a new client meeting my boss had promised I’d deliver a full presentation 5 days into my vacation next week with only two days to work on it before I’m out, so after the meeting I told my boss “I’m out of the office so the date needs to move as I’d like to help and present. I can’t help beyond Friday this week.” I could tell my boss was frustrated because the agency really wants to impress the client.

Really want out from agency life. 😮‍💨
