Have you ever heard of a degree in Computer Systems Analysis?
This is the most common H1B qualified job with little, if any, exact matching education. Therefore, this is the #1 job offer that gets RFEs. No job title has as bad a track record with CIS.
At TheDegreePeople.com, we work with H1B cases and their RFEs on a regular basis. We have overturned virtually every education RFE for Computer Systems Analysis that has come to us. While the education on its own in invariably turned down by CIS, we can change the major to one that CIS accepts by adding work experience.
Since there are few, if any, actual degrees that match the job Computer Systems Analysis close enough to avoid an RFE, the evaluation needed must take a different approach. We have rarely seen a Bachelor’s degree program that offers a specialization in Computer Systems Analysis, and for the ones that do, it tends to be a self-designed major.
Computer Systems Analysis may be the most common mismatch, but it’s not the only one. If you or your employee or client has a degree that does not match the H1B job, simply go to ccifree.com and submit a current, accurate resume and educational documents, and let us know the candidate’s job. We will get back to you within 24 hours with a pre-evaluation and full analysis of your situation and your evaluation options.
CIS accepts that three years of progressive work experience in the candidate’s field of employ is the equivalent of one year of college credit towards a US Bachelor’s degree in that major, but only when signed off on by a professor who is authorized to issue college credit for work experience. Throughout this work, the candidate must have taken on progressively more responsibility and specialized skills and expertise on the job, proving that specialized education occurred o the job. This is naturally occurring in virtually any job. If you or your employee or client has years of progressive work experience in the field of Computer Systems Analysis, or whatever job title is offered, a credential evaluation that converts work experience into college credit to combine with the education the candidate already has will fill in the gap between the degree and the job offer.
This conversion must be written by a college or university professor with the authority to grant college credit for work experience. At TheDegreePeople.com, we ALWAYS have professors who can do this on hand for these kinds of situation.
If you or your employee or client has a degree that does not match the H1B job, simply go to ccifree.com and submit a current, accurate resume and educational documents, and let us know your client’s job. We will get back to you within 24 hours with a pre-evaluation and full analysis of your situation and your evaluation options.
