Masters while working, can emp apply for PERM?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I completed 51% of my MBA while working for my employer, and the other on F1 before coming on to H1. Is it possible for my employer to apply for PERM now as I am in my last year of H1 expiring Sept 2013? I have 5 years of experience with 2 years from a different employer. Please help.

I read on one of the posts in this forum that masters received while working is not counted. Can someone please comment?

Not true. I'm in the same boat. I did 100% of my masters while working. My company is filing in EB2. There are some ways to get around this. Just talk to the attorney. My company is using Fragomen.

Is your job the one you held while working on your degree? If not, it is a significant fact in the decision.

I think there is a 51% or more rule. Something like 51% of your GC job should be different from what you were doing while earning your Masters degree. My GC position is that of a manager, vs an analyst now, so they were able to justify that my responsibilities will be different.
