Being rejected as a candidate because you're a refugee of war but with a valid EAD and no limitations in terms of employers is pretty rough.
Has anyone had a similar situation? Any success convincing employers?

No, I haven't. But I just have to comment how awful that sounds. I'm sorry you're experiencing that. It's not right. How could being a refugee of war make you unqualified for any position? I don't get it.There must be a law?

Maybe this is the wrong platform for this, but to me the whole virtual interview process is so fake to me. Granted virtual can never REALLY take the place of in person interviews. The interviewer will say “yeah you did great” I think you’ll be a great fit here “……then ghosts you for a long time. All the fake questions. All the “requirements” that won’t equal a good employee. I just wish ppl would be real.
