- Graduated from college in May
- Received my OPT EAD card
- Future employer No.1 (start date in October) helped me submit H1B application and H1B approval letter expected to be issued in August
- Received a second offer from future employer No.2 --> Decided to join future employer No.2 in reliance upon OPT (knowing that the H1B tied to future employer No.1 will be wasted)
- Haven’t informed future employer No.1 of this decision (of not joining them) and the H1B approval is due to be issued soon
I heard that once the H1B approval is issued, my status may well be automatically changed to H1B from OPT, even if I have not started to work for future employer No.1 yet.
In that case, if I am to join future employer No.2 in October, I will not be able to rely upon my OPT (which has been changed since the issuance of H1B approval letter), unless an OPT REINSTATEMENT process is completed. Is this TRUE???
I am so worried.
