EAD Authorization Questions

Hello all,

I really hope your visa journies are going well, and all that are still awaiting to be approved at any stage are!

I have a couple of questions if anyone can answer them:

I am a K1er and I have just applied for my EAD (when I say just I mean when I got married I did it straight away) I got my NOA from that saying they would be in touch to send me an appointment for biometrics.

Weirdly I checked online and on the 6th July the USCIS said they sent me a letter saying that they approved my I765 APPLICATION FOR EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION. However I haven't received the letter yet and have as of yet not been able to talk to a human rep about this.

From people's experience, does this mean I can start looking for jobs? of course I can't work until I have my EAD in hand but would it harm things at this stage to start sending my resume to interested parties (I have a few people chomping at the bits for me to send my resume).

Also what happened to the biometrics interview? can these be waived?

thanks muchly in advance :D and good luck to all those foriegn job hunters out there! and for that matter any US job hunters out there!

Since April 2009 I have visited my local USCIS office twice and they have been very clear. Do not even look until you receive authorization. I was told that, if I did and was found out, they could deport me even though I'm now married to a U.S. citizen. Crazy.
