My name was picked up in the lottery for H1B this year. Can I change my job before Oct 31? I guess that’s the time when you are officially on H1B.

Yes you can, I did but it is risky. Unless the new job pays significantly more and has a better profile match , changing isn’t advisable. Basically if USCIS feels that there is some fraudulent stuff going on, they can unilaterally dismiss the approved petition (this is what new employer’s lawyer had explained 7 years ago, details hazy). I took the risk and things went fine for me. Most likely they will give you an offer and ask you join in Jan 22

Does your Drivers license say ‘temporary’ on it? I would assume anyone on a visa will have a DL that says temporary on it. Has it caused an issue in getting a loan?

Am I doomed to never get an auto loan in US? Dealership is looking for other lenders and I’m looking for other CUs but I didn’t expect this issue.
