On an H1b wanting to exit. If I go on search & then have 60 days of unemployment, would that be low risk to find a job? Or should I go on H4 while searching & reclaim H1b when I get an offer?

60 days of unemployment grace period only applicable if your company do layoff. Going on h4 is an option but ur h4 wont approve fast. So when ur new h1b approve and the day you want to join ur job. Ask your lawyer to revoke h4 application

Hi OP, your question has become relevant again given the Covid situation and potential layoffs. Am assuming you must have collected some good information since posting this 5 weeks ago. What are most likely options if an H1B employee is laid off?

Wanting to exit McKinsey. This is something unheard of

Haha. It’s not unheard of. I’ve just had a frustrating experience recently with studies & am quite over the staffing process.

Why not just search while you are working, and exit when you find a job and h1b is transferred?

It does but hard to say if I’ll be able to get an offer within a week or two
