我博士毕业后在高校做了几年科研,目前是H1B身份。我申请的EB1A已经通过,485的
Received date是今年 6/1。按照惯例,也许我明年2月就能拿到绿卡。同时我也申请了EAD(虽然估计没什么用)。
我想离开学术圈,去科技公司工作。从递简历到面试通过最终上班,一般会有几个月时间。我是否可以现在开始找工作?如果顺利的话,公司是否会等到我拿到绿卡后再让我上班?
请大家给我一些经验和见解。谢谢!

你可以开始试,但是绿卡这种东西随机性特别大,非常幸运的话五六个月就能拿卡,正常点十个月,十二个月左右,倒霉点一年半,进了黑洞就两年以上了。说白了就是提前计划绿卡后的工作风险非常大。新employer愿意给你弄个别的身份顶着最好。

EB1A 拿到EAD之后你随便换工作,最多就是renew EAD

谢谢!我向律师确认一下关于 EB1A 的 EAD 是否可以随便换工作。很多文章说只能在
原先领域内。

I heard the new EAD's validity is two years. See the new policy alert:

June 9, 2021 PA-2021-10
Policy Alert
SUBJECT: Employment Authorization for Certain Adjustment Applicants
Purpose
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is updating policy
guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual to increase the amount of time a grant
of employment authorization is valid for applicants seeking adjustment of
status under Section 245 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
Background
When an applicant applies for adjustment of status, he or she may also apply for employment authorization so that the applicant may work in the United
States while waiting for a decision on the adjustment application. Currently, USCIS issues adjustment applicants Employment Authorization Documents (
EADs) that are valid for 1 year. However, in the interest of reducing the
burden on both the agency and the public, because the current median
processing time for certain adjustment of status applications is close to or greater than 1 year, USCIS will now issue initial and renewal EADs to
adjustment applicants that are valid for 2 years. Replacement EADs will not be affected by this update; USCIS will continue to issue replacement EADs
with the same validity dates as the original EAD.1
This guidance, contained in Volume 10 of the Policy Manual, is effective
immediately. The guidance contained in the Policy Manual is controlling and supersedes any related prior guidance.
Policy Highlights
• Updates the validity period for initial and renewal EADs issued to
applicants for adjustment of status under INA 245 from 1 year to 2 years.
Citation
Volume 10: Employment Authorization, Part B, Specific Categories, Chapter 4, Adjustment Applicants Under INA 245 [10 USCIS-PM B.4].
1 An applicant files for a replacement EAD if his or her card has been lost, stolen, mutilated, or when the previously issued card contains erroneous
information, such as a misspelled name.

明年2月就能拿到太乐观了。明年6月比较可能。除非你有锦鲤体质。

高校的H1B无法转到工业界,拿到EAD后应该可以开始工业界工作,但是之前也不影响先找着。
