Declined a job offer from Company A. But H1B lottery got picked the next day
I can't explain how unlucky I am. I had a job offer from company A for a support engineer role which I didn't like. They had applied for H1B cap lottery (which I felt, getting picked in the lottery were very rare).
I got an offer for a better role from company B, so I declined the offer from company A and BAMM! my H1B by comp A got picked. My job offer status is already updated to 'Withdrawn'.
I am an F1 Post-OPT student and OPT days have not started yet. What should I do?
Will I be able to continue in company B just on OPT as if my H1B was never applied? Or since H1B has been picked, will it stop my OPT completely?
Need some urgent suggestions.
