    i think it should be based on location. I am in WA and getting paid 12/HR from my employee on bench

    This is scary. Was he working 20 hours/ week after graduating with his professor? That should not be considered as unemployment. Was his work in a lab or a research project in the STEM field? I need more details please!

    I'm on OPT extension still searching for job and I've 1.5 months to lapse my unemployment period.
    I heard that you can stop your OPT unemployment clock by 2 means:
    1) Join a consultancy full time and get enrolled as an employee
    2) Work as a volunteer for non-profit org in the same field as your studies.

    My question is (considering that I'm in 24 month extension period)
    a) if you work for any employer but unpaid - will that count for unemployment?
    b) if you work for 20 hours/less in a week - will that count for unemployment?

    Pl help clarifying these questions as it'll clarify my confusion.

    Thanks.

    Hey guys currently i'm on my OPT which started on July 1, 2018. It's been 4 months and i'm still looking for a job. So i did join a consultancy and enrolled as an unpaid internship employee. I've submitted the offer letter to my college as well as updated the information on my SEVP portal. But it's been 4 months now and i left my consultancy 2 months back to join a new consultancy. But the new consultancy hasn't provided me with the offer letter. They are telling me once i get an actual job through their consultancy after that they will provide me with the offer letter. My question is that is it safe? Should i update in my profile that i have left my previous consultancy and joined a new one or should i wait for an actual job and then they will provide me with an offer letter and then i should update it. Please help me as i dont know what to do in this situation. Is it safe that i don't update my profile right now and after a few months or i should get a new letter from consultancy right now. Any answer would be appreciated. Thank you.
