Do companies like google, Facebook, Microsoft and amazon hire employees with close to or less than 1 year left in their OPT?

    Yes. Google doesnt give a fuck. If you dont get h1b, theres a standard procedure to get you a team from a remote office. To get a transfer offer, you need to have strong Perf and interview is not required. Its risky tbh but better than getting terminated. If you have only 1 Perf cycle, usually transfer is pretty easy since most get Meets anyway. But most interesting teams are in Zurich and obtain a Swiss visa is challenging. PM for more info

      ^ this. Google does. Also, there is extended OPT, but I guess whoever is on OPT know that already. Smaller companies, nope, they are already very careful with H1B. But I never heard about that for Amazon, usually they just put you back to India lol.
