Changed field of employment - potential risks?

Recommended Posts

Gurus - I am applying for citizenship soon.  Timeline to getting my GC looked like: 

1. Employer 1 (E1) filed original labor, 140, 485. Received EAD. Worked for 5+ years for E1

2. Switched to Employer 2 (E2) using H1B transfer. Also ported GC process using AC21

3. Got my GC within 6 months at E2. Stayed with E2 for another 2 years before leaving for  business school

4. Have been working in a different field since business school

Do you foresee any complications with this change in the field of employment? 

Also I have couple of speeding tickets (<$200) from 9+ years ago. I don't remember either the dates or the actual amounts. How do I report these in my application?

Your naturalization should and will not be affected by the circumstances stated. 

I no drugs or alcohol or arrests was involved and the fine less than 500USD, no documentation is needed though you should mention the incidents to the best of your recall.

Thanks JoeF, pontevecchio. So I started filling up the form online, and when I say "Yes" to citation, it asks for details including exact date (MM/DD/YYYY). I just vaguely remember the first speeding ticket was in 2005-2006 for <$100, and other was in 3-4 years preceding 2012 and was less that $200. That's all I recollect - I paid both the times without contesting. In addition, I have a <$100 video enforced traffic ticket from 2011-2012. 

Any thoughts on what I should put as dates for these given I don't even remember the year? I don't even live in that state/ coast for the last 8+ years, so getting anything from DMV will be difficult.

Put in what you remember, with a note like "to the best of my recollection." They won't bite your head off...
