I am currently waiting on my EAD card. USCIS received the paperwork on January 17th and noticed it on January 24th. Priority date and receipt date are the same. I have an job offer to start on a new job on April 3rd. Does anyone have a knowledge if it is possible to expedite or premium process the I765. I am getting a little nervous since this job would be the best job I had ever had with twice the pay. It would be sad to loose the opportunity because of an administrative hold up.Please let me know your imput
It is extremely unlikely CIS will agree to expedite an EAD application in order for someone to get a new job.

Unfortunately, Premium Processing only applies to certain non-immigrant and immigrant visa cases, not the EAD I-765 process. Generally, USCIS processes EADs in about 90 days, though this can vary.
That being said, if you are renewing your EAD in the same visa category as your previous EAD, under new rules, so long as you filed before the expiration of your old EAD, your authorization may be extended automatically while your renewal is pending. It will depend on the basis of your case.
