  • Can I work prior to OPT start date? I dont want to lose this opportunity.

    Hello, I have a urgent question. My opt starts on july 8th, but if an employer wants me to come before that, is that okay? Can i start working for him unofficially before that date? They would probably want me to start working by june 25th maybe. They want someone by that date, and I dont want to lose this opportunity. All comments will be appreciated.

      It would be tricky, but if you can ask your employer that if you can Volunteer for the position from 25th June - 8th July, and if he agrees then you are good to go. But some universities also have issues with Volunteering Positions, so do consult with your colleagues from University as well.

        You can accept it and ask your employer to run your payroll after July 8, that should be fine, No more issues !! Even one of my frnd did that last year!!

          Until and unless you are not being paid for that moment, you are good to go.
