I’m still waiting for my ead card to come out even 3months after my opt app is submitted. This makes me so nervous and afraid of the chance that my offer might get canceled.. worst case scenario — i might have to get a new job if my company doesn’t wanna wait for me. Should I start applying to new companies? Is it possible to switch to new company while my ead is processing? Ah why visa never made me this frustrated..

      OP
      Would you start interviewing with other companies? Did your company wait for you?

      My company waited, most companies are pretty understanding. Have you asked if they’ll wait? If they say yes, then you don’t need to interview.

      I’m the OP. want to ask but I heard some people got the card in 5 months. So I need to ask them to wait for me 2 months more from now .... would this be too long to wait?

    It’s very easy to switch. Just need to update your online portal.

    lol you just got started. Your visa worries have a long way to go. H1b then green card. Assuming your not from India/China it wont be that bad then. I do feel bad for them though
