I completed my PhD in June 2020 and recently received a postdoc offer and all the documents to start in the US. I am now completing my application for a J1 visa.
In the "current employer" section of the DS-160 form, should I write "not employed" since I am not currently working (since last year)? When asked to explain, what should I say?
Should I explain that I couldn't find a job after graduation due to the Covid-19 pandemic and how it affects my chances of obtaining a J1 visa for the postdoc?
