Expedia Offer - visa issue

Amazon / Eng NWHw82

Got a verbal offer from Expedia. Right now on OPT but have got my H1B approved with premium processing. Since my H1 transfer can be initiated only after October 1st, Expedia has now put my offer "on hold" and says that I might have to interview again.

Anyone else faced similar issue? Will I have to go through the interview process again? Is there a way to transfer H1B before Oct 1? TIA

      If the pay wasn't way below market I'd think that was a good answer. But I guess if you cashed in on selling your soul to Amazon for a few years probly don't need a market rate salary.

    If you have received your I-797, I think the transfer can be initiated a few weeks before Oct 1st. So you can join them on OPT cap-gap the next day when they submit your petition, but there is the risk of your H1B transfer getting rejected.

    Better stick with Amazon for now. You can always get into Expedia. Let some of your stocks vest.

    Amazon can revoke your H1B , rather stay with Amazon till October then after stamping join Expedia

    you have the right to choose your Visa status. you can join on opt and remain in that status till it expires. transfer the Visa at a later state

    I think you can join on OPT now and can get the h1 after October as cap exempt from Expedia.
