The H1B transfer process is just taking soooo long and the wait is painful. Had my interviews in Oct and got the offer only in December. Signed the offer end of Dec and they have still not filed my H1B transfer petition 😑 😒 Mentally checked out of my current job since December. How long will this pain continue....end of rant.

Takes about 1.5-2 months, depending on the lawyers. So given your end of Dec offer, it should take roughly end of Feb or March 2022 for filing. Processing will depend on whether the case of premium or not. Good luck. Try taking a month off before you start your new job.

Why does it take so long to file?

1. Lawyers have to make sure your petition is properly organized to reduce chances of it being audited or rejected 2. You need a Labor Cert to be filed and vetted by DOL prior to filing with USCIS 3. Supposedly your application is not the only application the lawyers are working on, so particularly depends on prioritization

During the difficult time, be mindful while going out for protest. Being an immigrant, it’s a high risk for your visa renewal. There is ongoing police activity and probability of getting your name in police record, which will impact your visa renewal. Be careful and stay safe and don’t do anything which is unlawful in a foreign country (not that you do unlawful in your home country).

Feeling a bit depressed these days. I am graduating with a Master’s degree in May, have interned & worked for Fortune 500 companies, big-name nonprofits, and for-profit firms in the entertainment, music, and communication industry.

I am graduating next month and running out of time. Any advice?

I am heartbroken - I ended a 6 month situationship with a guy that I met on a matrimonial app. He was not happy with my income($70k - 95k), company (consulting firm) and visa status (F1-OPT with one more attempt left for H1B visa). He wants to marry a woman working for a big tech firm and earning more than $100k/year with a stable visa. (Though he has I-140) I was constantly working hard to get a better job. He was not satisfied with my efforts - he wanted results. Was break-up a right decision?

My parents are both immigrants. My mom was orphaned at age 7 and moved to the US after feeling like she had no future in her country. My dad won a visa lottery months before completing his economics degree abroad but came to the US for a better life. They both work hard and things have not been easy. Today I got to take them to a nice dinner to celebrate my first 6 figure salary. They said this is the better life they came here for. I’m beyond grateful.

It's not dry and dead out there. Started looking only 6 weeks back. Attended 3 interviews. Accepted one offer. Transfer approved in 3 business days. Joining Chase next week. Keep looking guys.

Before that I spent money on getting a professional resume from Monster. Highly recommended. Good luck all.
