can I please have a question?
Fact: If I am on H-1B and lost a job I can immediately apply for an H-1B transfer.
Question: What about if I lost a job, but I don’t want to find a job immediately. I want to travel out of country, come back on visitor visa (B-2, or ESTA) and do a few job interviews. Then I want my new employer to apply for a new H-1B petition with cap-extempt (or possibly H-1B transfer).
Is it possible to apply for H-1B transfer (or new H-1B with cap-extempt) even with a 1-2 months gap from the last employment? Of course I would be maintaining a legal status these 1-2 months (being back in my country, or re-entering on tourist visa).
Thank you for reviewing and answering my question.
