As a graduating F-1 student, can I work in the U.S. during my grace period?
The 60-day grace period is not meant to be used for working.
I have an F-1 visa and recently graduated from a U.S. college, and am not planning to leave until the end of my grace period, which I understand is in 60 days. I will mostly be “hanging out,” as you Americans like to say. But a friend of mine says his father needs some extra help with his delivery business, and will pay in cash. Will I get in trouble if I do this?
