Hello,

I am a recent graduate F-1, I have my EAD card, I have a few question, I am not looking to get sponsored, I was wondering if I can work multiple jobs, and also what forms do I have to fill for employment is it just the I-9, like i said I am not trying to get sponsored for GC or anything, just want to work and gain experience.
any advice would be very nice thank you.

I assume you got an EAD for OPT. The explicit condition associated with your OPT EAD is that you can only work in a field relevant to your field of study. Taking employment in any other field will be violation of the conditions.

oh yeah, when you have ead you have the same rights as an american worker in terms of doing part time, overtime etc.

At least that was the rule when I was on my OPT in 2005. Dunno if the rules have changed.
