I'm pretty sure that as long as you don't accept employment until you either have your GC or the EAD card, you won't get into any trouble by applying now.

You can interview as much as you want. You have 3 days after your start date to present work authorization to an employer who hires you. There's always risk that you won't be approved at the interview, but then you don't have to start the job. If you are approved, I'd ask for a stamp in the passport, so that you don't have to wait for the GC to arrive to start work.

The bottom line is that you don't have to have work authorization to look for a job and you are doing the right thing by letting the employers know when you can start work.


09-02-2005 Applications for AOS, EAD, and AP received by MSC

10-21-2005 AOS fingerprint notice for 12-08-2005

11-07-2005 AP approved

12-05-2005 Infopass appt at San Jose office for interim EAD -- Refused, because it is already approved by MSC on 11-07-2005

12-07-2005 Attempt at interim EAD at San Francisco office -- no go. Back to San Jose, where CSO (chief station officer) tells they will contact MSC via email to request permission to issue interim EAD

12-08-2005 Biometrics for AOS and EAD. Having no EAD appt letter was no problem (used EAD NOA)

12-15-2005 EAD arrived in the mail

You are allowed to accept work before you get your green card as long as you do not actually start work. So if you are approved at your interview you can start working immediately after the interview.

I would suggest that if (when) you are approved at your interview that you ask them to stamp your passport so that you can show your employer that you are legally allowed to work when you show up to start your new job.

Good Luck.

dont worry and look for job already. It always take a while to find something, then another week or more for them to decide ant the again at least week to start. At least for real permamet job.

An if you can do not metion your status, and if they realy ask (but shoudn't - it is illegal) explain exactly what is your situation and when you have interview.

You need to show card just on the first day.

Wish you luck!!
