I really need your help with my situation.
My current OPT expires on Oct 10, 2013, and it’s not extendable. I have been on an internship for 7 months so far.
I am now trying to find an employer that can sponsor my H1B visa as soon as possible.
My question is: If I find an employer that is willing to sponsor me and they submit H1B petition before OPT expiration date, Oct 10, 2013, what will happen to my work status after Oct 10? Am I going to wait till Apr 2014 or will I be able to stay in the US till a decision has been made? I am totally confused! Please help.
