I am located in California, Palo Alto, I am currently on F1
Hello, I am currently on F1 OPT. I will now be applying for H1B and STEM OPT extension. my current employer is not e-verified and can hence only apply for H1B. My OPT ends July 12 and hence I would need to apply for STEM OPT extension around April 12. I would apply for STEM OPT extension through another employer. Is this allowed, applying for STEM OPT extension through employer B while my H1B application is pending through employer A? If I quit employer A after my H1B application through them, work for employer B and then in case my H1B gets selected, I work for employer A again during cap gap/october 1 onwards, is this allowed? Is there any other way of going about this? … read more
