How many previous employers to mention on DS-160 form? (Voluntary work?)

Recommended Posts

I have worked on campus from Aug 2006 to Dec 2009. I graduated in Dec 2009 and then I joined a company in March 2010 and worked until Dec 2010 on OPT as volunteer.

I joined new company on January 2011 and worked until Nov 2011 and got paid all the time. (I was still on OPT). Now I joined my current employer in Dec 2011 and still with the same employer.

My question is how many employers do we need to mention?

-On campus job employers? Unpaid work employer? or just paid one as in my case the last two one? or all of them?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

as long as you can provide documents, you may mention all the prior experiences.

In the past, with the paper form, one could not mention; but not it is not so difficult.

I do not have any document (pay stub. w2) from that employer since he agreed to give me training and work so that I can keep my status valid.

So looks like I should not mention that employment experience in DS 160. Any thoughts?

Hey SAM,


I'm in a similar situation where I worked with my professor for a couple of months to keep my OPT active. Should I mention it on my DS-160?


I would really appreciate your help, I've been confused on this for some time now
