Hi All,

I need an urgent advice from you experts.

I got an offer from a Visa sponsor (lets say Company A ) from US and they are sponsoring H1B Visa.They are applying for H1B petition by April 1 2014.
If i get selected in H1b lottery, then i need to join them by October 1.

Meanwhile I got some other offer from Good Product based company ( Lets say Company B ) to which i have to join by April third week.
I hope by April 3rd week i will not know about the Lottery selection results. ( as they are not processing in premium mode )

With Company A, Getting selected in the H1B Lottery is a uncertainty.
So I am in a situation that I cannot leave this offer from Company B because of uncertainty factor involved in Company A.

Now my Question is
1. Shall i join Company B, and If I get selected in H1b lottery i can resign in company B by Sep 2014 and can join Company A by Oct 1.?
If not selected in H1b lottery also, i can safely continue with company B.

2. While the company A is applying for H1b petition, i am not working with Company B. But while going for Visa interview i will be working with Company B. Will that be a problem during visa interview ?

Kindly share your thoughts.

Thank you.
Ranch Hand

You probably have to ask your company A (who sponsors your H1B) whether you can work for them in the meantime? Hiring is a painful process from employee side as well as employer side. There is too much cost involved. So, instead of joining B and resigning later, why don't you ask A whether these six months you can work for them? I do not recommend keeping company B in dark, since they spend money on you and resigning in short period is not ethical.
I'd appreciate it if you pronounced my name correctly. Pinhead, with a silent "H". Petite ad:
