Job title and SOC code does not match

Recommended Posts

Job title - Machine Learning Engineer
SOC code - 17-2141 - Mechanical Engineering

Work - Typical MLE and software engineering
Job duties according to H1B petition - Typical MLE
Undergraduate - Mechanical Engineering
Graduate - Engineering Management

H1B approved in 2020 June, yet to do stamping.

Should I be worried as I may have difficulty in changing jobs?


Option 1 -

Request lawyers to file LCA amendment to change change SOC code to 15 family as my job is repeated to this role

Option 2 -

No worries, if I change my company, the new LCA can be under different SOC code assuming "same or similar" parameter can be proven as my job duties would match
