I am applying for full time jobs in the United States, being a student from India on the F1 visa. I had the following questions during the application processes (on various job portals):
Is your current work authorization limited to practical training?
Select one of the following (it is basically a drop-down):
i. I am authorized to work for any employer in the US;
ii. I require employer sponsorship to obtain work authorization in the country
iii. My authorization to work in the US is unknown.
What kind of authorization are they talking about? I am a normal student (no criminal records, etc.) from India, currently in the US and applying for jobs. My OPT starts soon in June.
The general questions which most employers ask are:
1. Are you authorized to work in the US? I answer "Yes";
2. Will you now or in the future require a visa sponsorship to continue working? I again answer "Yes".
But, I don't know what to answer for the questions earlier (because they seem like a combination of the above two questions).
