Rejected from FACEBOOK for not having a H1b
I recently gave a technical interview for Data Specialist, Product Support Operations role at Facebook and I can say that they liked me a lot as I received an update within an hour that they want to schedule an onsite. But here’s the tricky part. They said that I need to provide a proof of my employment eligibility(EAD) before they could schedule an onsite.
I am currently on STEM OPT extension which is valid for a year and half. I provided them with a copy of my EAD and to my surprise, the recruiter called and told me that they couldn’t move forward as the immigration team said that they couldn’t support to hire me at this point and did not even specify a reason.
Did something like this happen to anyone else?
