Yes, you can do that as long as your application has been pending for more than 180 days. Look up AC-21

Theoretically with an approved 140, you can change jobs as long as it's still essentially the same type of jobs. However, without losing your priority date, your application will start from the very beginning again: job description, competency, advertising etc. So if you are rest of world or if your priority date is becoming current within a year, you switching to a new job could delay your process

Thanks for your reply! Helpful info!

It’s inevitable that you will need to redo your PERM. I wouldn’t leave until you I-140 is approved and you have a copy of the approval notice.

You draft the JD in a way that isn’t client specific. Generally you would do a broad project manager JD.
