      @birdbox its a jab regarding the hiring process at Google which is very slow (from what i hear) that by the time you actually start your employment with Google, Trump would have already finished his second term as POTUS

    Scam I've seen people in your situation use to stay in USA is before last day go out on medical leave due to stress. While on medical leave they cannot terminate you. Find a job. Return to work and get terminated.

    Love to see the support. Happy to refer as well.

    But my practical advice will be to keep options open. There is very little chance that you will actually get a offer before Oct 1st. You can easily forget interviewing with Google and Microsoft - 0 chance to get an offer so fast.

    Focus on startups and consultancy companies. Most probably a body shopping consultancy is your real bet. Be mindful to not join a shady one as that will tarnish your resume for life.

      It does not matter if you get laid off within 2 weeks. You have 60 days from the date you are let go and within that time frame you need to have had an H1 transfer initiated. You should be able to start at the new place with the transfer receipt. I know you must be tense about the whole situation but please talk to your immigration lawyers and breathe in/out. Good luck. PM for any Apple req IDs.

      Also - know that after 60 days you'll only go out of status. There is only one clear rule - you cannot stay more than 180 days - that will be unlawful presence. Which is very bad for potential future applications. But being say 45 days out of status - sometimes is let go. So don't feel stressed - talk to lawyer and apply like crazy.

      My H1 will start by October 1st.

      Meanwhile, I have lost job. So, I have to get my H1 transferred to new employer too.

      That is true, we get 60 days to find a new job during H1. But my case is a little different.

      Thank you for your response and help.
