Recent I was asked the following question: I work full-time as a software developer in H1b status. Now a local college has asked me if I can join as an adjunct teacher and teach a computer science class for only 4 hours a week. It is a government college and is willing to apply H1B. Can I work/teach part-time in that college? Is premium processing available?ANSWER: Yes, this should work. You can have what is called a concurrent H1B visa, i.e. more than H-1B at the same time. You just need to make sure that the second H1B application clearly indicates that it is a concurrent H1B petition and not a change of employer or replacing your current employment in any way. Also, you must continue to abide by all the terms of your original H1B. Premium processing for the teaching job is indeed possible, but prevailing wage determination's and LCA's take time.

Today is June 6, 2018. June 6 is a hallowed day in world history, and for America in particular. Today is the 74th anniversary of the invasion to take back earth from the slimy grip of Nazi Germany.
Because this is an immigration blog, I focus here on asking every would-be American—Indian, Chinese, Somali, Mexican—to pause for at least 1 minute today and reflect on what this day means to every software developer, home health aide, roofer, doctor, temple priest, baseball player, or fashion model.
It has been said, and I agree, that every historical event of the 20th century ultimately lead up to D-Day. And, every event of the 20th century since, was a result of it.
Think about that. The world before June 6, 1944 had to change, and that change started on France’s beaches. And who lead that change? Yes, a handful of military brass chalked out a brilliant strategy. But it only happened because of ordinary American, British, Canadian, French, and Australian soldiers.
