    Post Change of Status J1 to H1 After Getting a Hardship Waiver

    I am finishing my fellowship on J1 visa and recently I got hardship waiver. I am looking for H1 job here so quick question- Is it possible for my future emplyer to apply for h1b visa petition while I am here? Or I need to go out of USA and take appointment to USA embassy in my home country and get stamped/J1 to H1 then come to USA and start working. (In short - start working to 1st H1b job without leaving USA)

    Appreciate your response and help in this regard, thanks a lot.

    Regards

    As you are no longer subject to the two year HRR, you may petition to change your status in the same manner as any other non-immigrant. Read this.
