What’s your background?

Refile

I see lot of these cases for new H1B. Use your OPT and refile. Immigrated team will figure this out hopefully. If you don't mind me asking - what is your background and what work are you doing in PwC? In my time new H1s were easily approved but again I am talking about 10 yrs back

I work with digital risk solutions - Systems and controls. I have a masters in MIS - the job description seems to be the biggest problem because it makes it look so simple and generic.

@OP - My job description was shitty and different than my job role. I didn’t have a say nor was I informed about the JD. I’m just lucky it got approved without any issues (2017 applicant) Unfortunately, you can try but not win that fight, cause Job Descriptions are usually designed to be generic to attract wide varieties of candidates to apply. Multiple people have to approve it before it’s posted in public Usually when Green Card process is initiated, JD becomes very specific and narrow, to match only candidates profile.
