        They both are different, Just notify your school and they will get you your new i20 with the new employers name, Please make sure that you get all the required docs from the previous employer just in case you need it during the extension ( Offer Letter and pay stubs)... Good Luck...

          I would say wait till you get the card and then change the employer .. I have changed the employer while my stem ext status was pending and tried amending the old application and sending out new one .. It caused a lot of confusion and resulted in rfe .. Ppl in USCIS get confused pretty easily even with all the detailed letter and all the supporting docs

            Yes you can. USCIS allows you to transfer employer with the receipt and opt card. However your new employer might ask you to wait till you receive the card.
