Just got my H1B extension approved. If I decide to switch firm, can I go abroad (where h1b stamping is open) to get my visa stamped between the time I quit my current firm and join a new employer? Or do I need to be employed at the time of visa stamping? Are there any risks in doing this?

Why do you need to get a new stamp?

No, due to the pandemic, stamping is only allowed in your base country.

Yes that country I’m trying to go will be my base country

I hope to get some thoughtful responses from this post and nothing more. I work for a mid-tier firm after working for big 4s, I joined here after being let go. Having worked for a year, I kind of have this constant thought in my mind that my next lay off is coming. Reasons I think I don’t meet the expectations- in a way my work quality is average. Given am on H1b and a family man, this constant thought of lay off is driving me so crazy that I fear might take me to depression. What should I do?

This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
