In a contractor position and I see the difference in treatment between us. Applied for an awesome job but got rejected by USCIS due to specialty occupation and beneficiary qualification. I am wondering what to do. I don’t have a masters from the USA and I work in a field (healthcare analytics) outside of my course from India (automotive engineering). I am wondering if I should just chuck all this and go do a masters in healthcare or analytics related fields. Will have a peace of mind for sometime, and USCIS might not butt its head in in ruining my dreams again. What do you guys think?

In the same boat

First and foremost, Masters will not guarantee approval from the USCIS -be aware of that. You might still get denied.Higher education in the US is a big investment. So , try to get into top university , and don’t do it for visa but if it makes sense from your career standpoint.

Do some certifications related your field. That helps to support the skills required for your dream job
