I work in the US for an American Company and today I just happened to have a one on one meeting with my boss that we usually have regularly once a week. I was hesitant to bring this topic up but figured out that it’s best to talk about the plans that I had for the future (including my move to Canada that is a year - year and half away at this point) since my boss is the one who is going to sign my experience letter. I started off by giving her the facts about the long processing times about the green card and how waiting for it is really a waste of one’s life/time.
She seemed to understand where I was coming from. I also mentioned that I was very happy working for my current company and it was really hard making this decision. I basically convinced her that I needed to immigrate for legitimate reasons and not that I was bored/hated working at my current job.
That being said, after the one on one meeting, I felt really scared and fear that I might have spoken a little too much and that I might get laid off prematurely since they might think that I am going to leave the company anyway. I also made it clear that my move was going to be at least a little more than a year from today.
I’m guessing a lot of you guys faced a similar situation. If you guys think I messed up how should I recover from this while getting the experience letter at the same time without raising any suspicions. I want to somehow stick to my current job until I get the PR (next 7-8 months). After that I can relax.
My current stage in the process: Received ITA and Getting documents together for the final application.
