Do I just say I'm on H1B and have 2/3 year on it? Do I need to tell them I expect I can still renew for more years?

Is this usually considered during interview stage or does it only come in after offer?

This second class worker status sucks.

    Are you a contractor by any chance ? Just curious.

      Why would the answer differ if OP was a contractor though? Unless you mean if contract length is greater than visa validity

      OP
      No worries. At this point, I don't even care if I'm contractor. I just want money.

    No.. You don't need to say that you want to be able to renew it. It is understood.. Just say h1b expires in example :2020..if the recruiter is knowledgeable about immigration, they usually say ' oh well.. That's plenty of time' and if they don't know anything, I haven't had anyone ask anything before. Also 'I want to be able to renew my visa' is not even a conversation you have during interview process, it is understood, unless you are going for a very small startup who really has no immigrants and don't understand h1b. Also agree about being second class worker :/

    Just say your I140 is approved so you will get continuous extensions forever. Most recruiters know about this.

    just say that you are on H1-B and tell them that your perm/i-140 is approved if you have them already. if not, donโ€™t mention it..
