"Pending asylum" will do the trick. Can also type in "asylum applicant" but don't need the "out of status" qualifier. They'll figure this out by themselves (not that it matters any or affects in any way, shape or form your eligibility for asylum-based work permit.)

The answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
If you choose "pending asylum", that should be sufficient. Please see
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Asylum Applicant is a an adequate answer. Having filed your asylum application after January 4, 1995 you
must wait at least 150 days following the filling of your asylum claim before you are eligible to apply for an EAD (employment authorization document). Be sure that you submit the required documents to support your I-765 application, like for instance a copy of your I-94. If you are required to show economic necessity for your
category, submit a list of your assets, income, and expenses. If this is your first time applying for your EAD, you are required to provide a copy of a government-issued identity document, such as a passport showing your picture, with identifiers like name, and date of birth; a birth certificate with photo ID; a visa issued by a foreign consulate; or a national ID document with photo and/or fingerprint. The identity document photocopy must clearly show your facial features and your biographical information. If you have received a recommended
approval for a grant of asylum, you do not need to wait the 150 days and may apply for an EAD immediately upon receipt of your recommended approval. You may also want to file a copy of the USCIS receipt of your asylum filing which was mailed to you by the asylum unit, or any other evidence that your Form I-589 was filed with USCIS. Do not forget to sign and date the application and file it in the correct location.
You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney to assist and support you in your immigration process.
