A friend of mine that is working in a non-profit company will 'have' to quit his job towards end of April'14. A 'for-profit' employer has filed for his H1B and my friend is awaiting his H1B results. He will be competing with other H1B applicants since he is now transitioning from 'non-profit' to 'for profit'.
1) What are his options if he doesn't make it through the lottery and/or H1B approval gets denied?
2) Can he apply for a visitor B2 visa so that he could stay in the US, apply for other non-profit jobs and if selected start working for them?
3) If his H1B gets approved, what will be his start date? Can he start working as soon as his application gets approved or does he need to wait for Oct 1 (because of transferring from non-profit to for-profit?
