How easy or difficult is it to switch jobs once I get an H1-B visa?

The ease or difficulty of an H1-B transfer will largely depend on whether or not the process is completed properly. However, you are not restricted to keeping the same job on the H1-B status, but you are required to inform USCIS of any changes in employment as soon as a transfer takes place. Of course, you will have to find an employer that is willing to take you on H1-B employees, and there is no real way to determine how simple that process will be. It is possible that once you are working in the U.S. that you will have a much easier time networking and finding future employment elsewhere. Plus, your skills and education could make you a prime candidate for certain positions. Much of this can only be determined with more information.
