I came to the US in 2000 when I was 10 years old because my father had to work here . My father's went back home in 04 while I stayed with my mother . During my stay here I was basically out of status , but I still attended school . I went to grade school , junior high , and high school in the US and graduated with honors . Then I went back home in 2008 at age 18 , in order to get an 1 visa to attend college here in the United States . Now fast forward to June 2012 , I have graduated and I am on OPT until June 30th . Currently , I am working as a teacher's assistant . I have been interviewing for full time jobs at F500 companies and no one would hire me . I always get feedback saying that I am one of the top candidates , and I feel that its my 1 thats the issue . What are my options to stay ? DACHA ?i was limited to 500 words, and some letters were cut off. In the end I wrote, I feel that its my F1 thats the issue. One interview last year went really well, and I was sure I would get the job, but in the end, I was told that the my visa is a problem. Then the last interview I had, everything went well, but I had to bring in an application that I filled at home which asks for my working authorization. In college I did many internships and worked hard in school. I basically grew up in the US, having stayed here since 2000. I looked into the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and Im confused if whether I qualify or not. I went to school here all my life but I am now in lawful legal status because of my F1 visa. So do I qualify for that program? If not, my past is not relevant at all to that program?
