      He still needs to make sure he can renew his H1 indefinitely and be miserable for the rest of his life.

    They will surely file before your VISA runs out but not necessarily within 2months. People close to their VISA expiry date gets the first priority.

      Personal story -
      Hiring Manager during interview - we do everything on premium basis. Your GC will start within 2months.

      HR during new hire orientation - You will get mail from Immigrations within 2months.

      Immigration email Towards the end of the 2months - we are giving priority to people who are close to expiry date and you are on a waitlist. This was right after Trump’s travel ban and employees from those countries got priority.

      Anyway, they do it before you enter into a danger zone. No need to worry.

    They will start sending u questionnaire for ur PERM (first step for green card assuming eb2/3) within 60-90 days. You will also get an immigration alias and can mail them to start the process.

    Ask your recruiter. Get a (written) proof of email communication between recruiter, hiring manager, and HR.
