BBA Webinar: The Elusive H-1B: Making Odd Jobs Work

Thursday, April 16, 2020 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Webinar Only - , Boston, MA


The BBA presents live webinars via Zoom. Access to this program is free, included as part of your member benefit. Please register for this program through your BBA account to receive the Zoom webinar link.  In order to receive the Zoom webinar link, you must register at least two hours before the start time of the program.

This session will be a practical deep-dive into how to approach out-of-the-box H-1B petitions. We will study two different case examples of:

  • How to select the “best” SOC code in a multi-disciplinary world where nothing truly fits.
  • Consider when to get a combination degree/work experience evaluation to create a different, better matching degree field.
  • Crafting a job description which align with the SOC code with a future RFE in mind.
  • Using the OOH to your advantage and when to argue it is not appropriate to apply.
  • Samples of what additional evidence to include in the initial petition (with minimal effort) to avoid an RFE.
  • Samples of what to prepare for an RFE response for those cases you just cannot avoid it (job charts, expert letter template, etc.)

By using real-world case examples and supplying some take-home samples, attendees with be better equipped with a toolbox of ideas and materials to tackle their next tricky H-1B.
