On job applications, there is usually a question that says: "Are you legally authorized to work in the United States?"
- If you have DACA you can answer "yes" to the question and continue through the hiring process without having to disclose more detailed information about your background. Once hired, employers should not ask you about how you received your work permit. If you did not apply for a social security number through DACA, read more about ITINs here.
- If you do not have DACA or another work authorization status, there are other options you may consider for gaining experience and finding employment. See the section below for alternative employment options.
Alternative Employment Options
If you do not have DACA or another work authorization status, you may consider other options for gaining professional experience, such as:
- If you receive an internship offer, you may ask the employer not to be paid.
- You may discuss with an employer the option of working as an independent contractor. Independent contractors often do the same type of work, but instead of working for one employer, might work for multiple clients. Examples of independent contractor jobs include tutor or child care provider. An independent contractor can use an Independent Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), which can be obtained regardless of immigration status.
- You may consider starting your own business, a Limited Liability Company (LLC) may be an option to consider. An LLC is composed of an individual or a group of people who are both workers and owners of a business.
