  • H1 job offer while on F1

    Hi,
    I am pursuing my MS in IT at an 'abc' university in illinois and this is my 2nd semester I will be finishing my MS in dec2014. I got a job offer in Masacheussetts wherein they are ready to file for my H1 in this April but if everything goes well I need to join in october(till then I may or may not complete my masters. I want to know
    1. Can the employer file for my H1 while I am on F1.
    2. If he does will I have to take permission from my DSO?
    3. In case if the employer does it will it harm my F1?
    4. Even if he hires me on CPT I need to finish my studies till december so that I join them full time from spring because they want me on a full time basis. Finishing masters with a job is not possible as the job is in different state and my school is in different state.
    I am really confused what to do in this situation. Please help.

        I NEED AN ADVICE PLEASE GUIDE ME
        My educational background involve I have done 2 bachelor [1]Bachelor in arts[2]Bachelor in law

        My future aim is to settle down in usa ----I find education is only mode by which i can get a job in usa and thereby earn salary there. I am from a middle class family and taking a huge loan and coming to usa KEEPING IN MIND THAT I WILL REPAY IT when i get job. After searching i found out that i have 2 option

        First to do mba from there [which provide me 1 year of opt and 1 chance to apply for h1b]

        READ BELOW, PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG AND SHOW ME REAL PICTURE
        OF IT FIELD IN USA


        but after some research i found that if i do stem degrees [masters in computer information system] i get 29 month extension and 3 chance of h1b process and i also came to know that most of h1b sponsors are hiring graduate students from IT field especially computers.and it is easy to find a job in IT field comparatively if you done an mba from a university not in top 20 as i cant afford those due to high tuition.Another reason is that as we know that h1b is a lottery so if i do mba and donot come into a lottery than icant work in usa and if i couldnot work in usa i cant pay my loan expenses by working in india and this education dream will be a curse and i donot want to go under that situation But if i choose an masters in computers even if i couldnot get a job in 1 year , i can work in opt and apply for next year due to stem extension.but my case has a demerit i have no IT experience some one told consultancy will solve your issue and make your resume look nice.please guide me showing real picure of usa??as this step will be turning point in my life?How the IT scene in usa ???Does stem student after graduation find a job?As my bachelor is not in computers and simple arts does it have any effect in visa or h1b or when employer looks at resume?Guide as i don't know IT scenario there?Bottom line is i donot want that situation in which i haven given a degree and said go back to india as earning in usa and settling down here is my priority and that is why i am taking education a a medium pathroute to usa in which i found IT field a safe step............................Guide


        PLEASE SAY IT FIELD REAL PICTURE IN REGARD TO JOB OPPORTUNITIES, AND HI1B for those who have completed their masters in usa?does fresher tag is a setback or consultancy will feel good

            As much as I know, yes they can file you H1. Lemme share an experience. During my H1B stamping interview, I met a guy who was lilke in same situation as of yours. His company filed his H1B while and it got approved but his course wasn't completed. So, interviewer asked him how he can manage full time job with studies and I guess he said he moved to part time study. Well there's nothing wrong in this but it doesn't sounds good to hear that for a job you changed your status so quickly. Idk what happen with him later, but that day his current F1 visa got cancelled and he was asked to submit documents. In your case I would suggest to go ahead with this job and get H1B but before you go for stamping make sure you completed you degree. In short, it makes a huge impact on interviewer if your degree is completed and a negative impact vice-versa. In any case you can't start until Oct 1st (unless you're on opt, in that case you can work as an intern). Lemme know if you still need any clarification.

              If you are completing your Course in December, why don't you take OPT which will cover you for next 29 months , with no fear of visa stamping. Also in current scenario you need to go though H1-b lottery and work can be persured only after 1st Oct assuming its non profit company.My Advice will be to continue you program activate CPT and keep working on OPT.

                After reading the question and answers related to this I have few questions.
                1. The school's international advisor need to know about all this, I mean if his H1 is getting filed?
                2. If his H1 gets denied this time and he continues his studies normally and graduate, will there b any problem when he files an OPT/ OPT extension?
