  • Opt extension query

    Hi All,

    Recently, couple of days before i received a query on my OPT Extension. Here is the query:

    The document you provided and the SEVIS system establishes that the major of your qualifying STEM degree is "Chemsitry General". However, the form I-20s submitted establishing employment show you are currently employed by ...........TEK,Inc. and were previously employed by companies which seem to be focused primarily on Information technology.

    Please explain how your employment is directly related to your course of study and provide substantiating evidence. This evidence must include copies of job description, including job title, duties, location, pay rate and number of hours worked per week.

    i got my initial OPT in the month of SEPT-2012 and I am working for as SAS/Data Analyst through ......Solutions company and changed my employer in april-2013 to ....Tek,Inc but still continuing at the same client(BANK). My current employer is located in Florida and I am working in Chicago and still continuing.
    How should i support myself. Please help me on this issue.

    I have a course called ADVANCE ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY in my Masters where i dealt with purely Statistics and Analysis and SAS as well. if i take a letter from my professor stating that i dealt this course and have skills to perform in SAS jobs would it be helpful ? and I've also done Base SAS certification.

    Uscics purely doesn't know that i am working for a bank so i think it is not necessary to mention about the client but i am worried about the location and my pay check are running in chicago and my employer is in Florida. Do i have to submit my paychecks? when USCIS asked me about the pay rate.
    I have given my title as "DATA ANALYST"
    As my company is a purely software company and i am from Chemistry, what job duties/responsibilities should i provide?

    Please help me on this issue. All your suggestions are valuable to me. Thanks in advance
