Default university H1b --> industrial H1b

I want to change my job from an university to a company.

I know I have to apply for industrial H1b , but I am not sure whether I MUST wait till 1st Oct to start work.

Does anyone have idea? thanks!

University H1B(non profit/govt org ) is quota exempt...

Others are within cap.

You have to wait untill Oct 1st to work.

But you can apply for h1 visa 6 months before ie April 1st. So start applying for H1 immediatly as the cap for H1 will be reached very soon (may be in 1 week)

If you have worked on a H1B that was from the quota and you have
never left the US for more than 1 year since then.. then you can
transfer your university H1B to company H1B (without waiting for Oct1)
I have comfirmed this with one lawyer for my situation.

Thanks...I haven't worked with cap H1b before.

So it seems IMPOSSIBLE to change job from university to company since most companies won't help you apply H1B on April and wait 6 months (till Oct) to put you into work.
