They are supposed to check. Where did you omit the previous employer? In what status were you when you had that employment?

I was in OPT status. Where as in?

Did the job relate to your field of study? Will you be able to prove it?

FYI I have been in my current company for almost 5yrs now. My current company applied for h1b at 2013. I have an approved petition for the extension as well. I am going to India to get visa extended to 2019. So i shall be using dropbox facility
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I was hired by my current employer on may 2012

Ok. I doubt it will be an issue for an OPT employment, but take with you the proof that your employment during OPT was authorized and was related to your field of study.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions and there is no additional charge. Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested in these – I am happy to give you more details! If you have no further questions (at this time) please leave a positive rating for my service. I would sincerely ***** ***** You can do that by clicking on the 3rd, 4th or 5th stars or smiley faces if you see them. If you do not see any stars or smiley faces, you may have to scroll up to the top of the page or click on my name and they should come out. Also, your session does NOT close when leaving a positive rating, so you can continue to ask additional questions without additional charge. Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you, ***** ***** almost done and I have a last follow-up question. What are the visa officers generally interested while considering your h1b extension by the same company that applied for ur first h1b ?

Best to take a copy of your entire H-1B file. They often review all the element. You have to have the offer of employment, the job offer must be for a position that is related to your degree and experience. The position must normally require a bachelor's degree or higher. The company must have a need for someone in that position and must have the resources to be able to pay you what is normally paid to someone in that position. So take a copy of everything previous and a new offer of employment letter and copies of your last 3 to 6 paycheck stubs.

Let me know if you need anything else, but please do not forget that positive rating. Thank you!
