Changing employer during STEM OPT extension application process


Recommended Posts


I mailed my application  for my STEM opt extension on 6th of june.  My current OPT ends on 10th August.

i have recently got a very good offer from a company which i really want to take. First of all, can i change my employer and start working immediately after mailing the i986 and i765 with the new employer or i need to wait till i get my EAD physically and then start working. 

Is there any way where i can start working with the new employer not putting my STEM extension at risk.


Any replies are greatly appreciated.
