How can I ask a company to E-Verify themselves?

May 2 4 Comments

So I’m an international student/Electrical Engineer and I can only work for e-verified employers.

I found this job at a startup that matches perfectly with my profile. I applied online and have my first phone screening tomorrow.

And this company is not e-verified (not listed on the official e-verify portal). I will be asking them if they are e-verified or if they plan to apply soon. But if they’re not, how do I ask them WITHOUT making them lose interest in my profile?
I know they are not going to e-verify their company for someone random but I don’t want to not ask. And I don’t want to lose this opportunity because someone from recruiting doesn’t like my resume because I might require sponsorship in the future (not sure if it works that way, does it?)

The company is a small startup (50-100 people) and I really want to work there. The job application did ask me if I needed “sponsorship for work authorization” and I said No because I already have work authorization. I don’t need sponsorship for he next 2 years.

Anyways, has anyone been in this situation? How did you go about it?

    Everify is a very easy and fast process for companies. It can take them a day or at most a week to get it. Just ask for it. I am also international and went though the same process. It took the ceo or start up 6 hours to get it!!

      Also, make it so that they want you enough to go through the “trouble”

    Even if they don't have it now, they definitely would need it in future, no real reason for them to delay it.
