I came to the US in 2009 and completed my Masters in Computer engineering in 2011. I worked with a semiconductor company from 2011 to 2015 (I changed locations in 2013 but worked with the same employer).
I had to move back to India as my marriage ended in 2015. I had my support system back in India and hence moving to India turned out to be really helpful.
I recently came back to the US on an F1 visa to start my PhD program in January 2018.
I received multiple calls to join back the industry and one employer has offered to apply for a change of status from F1 to H1B.
Is this allowed? Are there chances of a H1B rejection because I recently came to US on an F1 visa?
