if this is approved, do I still have to wait until October?

If I have it after my opt expires, can I still work?

Thank you for your help.
I have been working for a state univ for the past 8 yrs. Only important matter which you need to know about univ. H1b is that it will be tough to change jobs if you decide to as you'll have to wait for visa quota to open on every Apr and prospective employer will have wait till Oct of that year for you to start.

The case will be different if you are able to file your GC in EB1
