Default Have GC want to change jobs

Hi,

I got my GC earlier this year (around June when I got my temporary passport stamp). The GC took 6 years to get and was applied for by my previous employer, for whom I worked for 6 years - ending March this year. I got a new job in April, and my current employer was the one who gave evidence of permanent employment (I had been waiting for 2+ years in adjustment of status, so the employment based application had become mine). Now I find that this job is not turning out as I had hoped and there is an opportunity for me elsewhere that would get me back on track.

The question is, it seems from what I read that 6 months is a safe time before changing job after GC in general, is this likely to apply to me given the extended application period and the fact that the AoS application became mine?

Regards

Noodle

Once you have the GC, you are essentially free as a bird and can work in
any job you like. You do not need to show the intent to stay with the new
employer at this point.
