I was laid off by my company in Nov 2021 after getting my green card approved in Sept 2021. I just got a new job and planning to go back to my home country for a long overdue visit. Will CBP give me a hard time for re-entry when i get back to the States?

I am currently in the U.S. on an F2 visa through my wife who decided to go back to school. I was approached by Deloitte and after having a bunch of interviews got an offer which I have signed. Now to the problem - visa. They seem to have been under the impression that I already had the H1B status and only needed to sponsor the application process. This is obviously not the case and now we are preparing for the application in March. Q: what is my best recourse if I don’t win the lottery? EB visa?

I am a first yr associate, started few months ago. Currently, rather than focusing on few engagements, I have been on many different private engagements. I first felt it would help me to get variety of experience, but I feel like I don't have deep understanding... I went to first public engagement recently and I feel behind from my colleagues who started almost same timing as I am.
Looking to move to the city from Texas on 6/15. I have been watching a ton of apartments (and there are plenty that I like and are within my price range). My questions are: (1) how difficult will it be to find a place starting on 6/15? Should I just bite the bullet and start a lease on 6/1?; (2) when should I look to sign? A month out? At the beginning of next month?
Taking over a project and previous project lead rarely spends time with me. I mean for the issues with documentation, I am able to nearly understand everything, but a lot of the scope discussion were already done but in his head only. In this case, should I try grabbing him or setting up calls with business again to collect everything?
