I'm currently working at Google through an employment agency, and my opt expires in 3 months and i wanna apply to opt stem. I know the USCIS doesn't allow third party employers anymore, so I want to speak to my manager about getting hired directly from Google. However, when I looked up Google on e-verify.gov it shows that its a federal contractor but NOT e-verified.
This baffles me as there are SO many international employees at the company, so I'm wondering if anyone has gone through this and has had their opt stem at google? If so, does the location where they use e-verify matter? I'm currently working in the New York office.
Please try to find a non third party role.
