# Current Occupation in DS160 for H1B visa

Hi,

I’m Currenlty a grad student (in my country) and doing some TA/RA , obviously i’m not going to complete my grad studies as i’m applying for the h1b

now in the DS160 what i shoud write in the current occupation page ? could being a grad student hurt my application ? or should i just write TA only ? (with no monthly income )

will i need an HR letter ? all i can get now is an enrollment prove papers in the grad studies .

Thanks

You are doing TA/RA on the side and that’s not your main occupation. You are actually a student and that should be your response if you are still enrolled in the school on the date of interview.
