Should my employer start PERM process while I'm on OPT or wait?


Recommended Posts


I'm currently on F-1 OPT. My employer is willing to start GC process for me now(PERM), as well as submit H1-B application in the upcoming pool. Is it a risk to start GC now?


I'm worried that if I start the process, I would not be eligible to apply for 2-year STEM OPT extension. Would starting the GC process affect my chances of obtaining the extension? What would be the best option?
