I am on my 5th year of H1 B and work as senior analyst and my employer will just be filing the PERM right before 6th year start. They are applying for a next position for me for labor. Last month, I got an opportunity within the organization with a different team for the next level but I couldn’t take it as they would have to change the entire PERM filling process and it wont be possible before the completion of 5th year.
The job profile for the next role is related to finance and I am currently in IT computers. Would this be a amendment in my H1 or can I continue to take that role? and do I need to redo the PERM processing again?
How should I be transitioning for the new role and when would be the right time( would it be after PERM is filed or after I get I-140)?
Would appreciate your thoughts on my case as it would help me plan my future. Note - I work for a big organization and its very unlikely that they would be lenient on any processes.
