Request for Green Card sponsorship

Currently, I'm working for my employer using CPT EAD work authorization because I'm taking special Master's courses in US.

Due to limited length of my work authorization I'm aiming at job change to a company which can sponsor my green card.

Some folks say it's better to get H1B before green card to settle until green card processing gets completed.

On the other hand, I felt in doubt that H1B is lottery so if I go for H1B then I'm wasting time for nothing if by chance I'm not selected.

There is a greater chance of taking another Masters in my University. So I'm considering job change for GC purpose and I'm getting promises of GC sponsorships.

Any advices what are the steps involved in GC processing?

    Special master courses? Are theae from universities which claim you will get OPT once you get masters from them so that you can extend your stay in US?

      That is exactly what I am talking about. Do you think the course helped you with anything other than extending your stay?

      It's so hard to find company accepting CPT EAD. For that reason I'm using my GC EAD (asylum based). Popularity view is it's mandatory to stay in STATUS in case sponsoring company files Green card. With this in mind, I'm wasting my money while taking non sense course bitterly.

      Got no idea if GC EAD is considered as status beyond being work authorization.

      If you have asylum based GC EAD, would it take much time for you to receive your GC? Mind if I ask which country you are from? Generally, bigger companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Expedia etc wont hesitate in filing your GC right away.
      The step taken to join the course to extend your stay is exactly what the immigration office is fighting against. These courses/institutions are flouting the laws and almost walking in illegal territory

      I feel insecure mentioning my country. You're right I heard Amazon does not to mention the difficulty joining. I'm aiming to apply for Amazon if everything goes smooth.

      I don't feel I can get GC using Asylum. There is high rate of denial.

      My question to you do you think GC EAD of asylum is eligible for GC thru sponsoring company ?

      Ok, so GC for asylum is a different category than company sponsored GC. It would be a totally different process and has no connection to asylum based GC. Although I feel you are from a non backlogged country, so it shouldnt take much time for your gc to arrive. As always, do consult your lawyer. Good luck
