    Case background
    - Category: EB-1A extraordinary ability
    - Petitioner & Sponsor: Employer
    - Beneficiary: Self
    - Status: I-140 approved; I-485 filed and under processing

    Questions:
    1. Can I change jobs (after receiving EAD) while my I-485 is pending for LESS THAN 6 months without hurting my GC process? Keep in mind, my case is based on my ability, but my case is complicated because the petitioner & sponsor is my employer (not self-petitioned as is typical of EB-1 EA cases.
    1.1 If yes, does my new job have to be in the field in which I have indicated my "extraordinary ability"?
    1.3 If the new job is in another field then what are the repercussions?

    2.1 If I change jobs after my I-485 is pending for MORE THAN 6 months (leveraging AC21 rule), does my new job have to be in the field in which I have indicated my "extraordinary ability"?
    2.2 If the new job is in another field then what are the repercussions?

    3.1 If I change job right after getting my GC (say, 1 month after getting GC), does my new job have to be in the field in which I have indicated my "extraordinary ability"?
    3.2 If the new job is in another field then what are the repercussions?
