I am trying for an H1B transfer to a pharma company in their IT dept.
They are doing it under SOC code 1121... wage level 4.
Can anyone let me know if anyone had RFEs on this SOC code at that wage level.

Thanks a bunch in advance...

I am on my 10th year of H1B, have a valid H1 till 2020. I had to file for an amendment due to my role change as Project/Program manager. I got an RFE on Specialty occupation.

1. Is there anyone who got a specialty occupation RFE on Program / project manager role and got through the RFE? How would you recommend to respond to RFE stating Program management requires specialty occupation?

2. Since my H1 is valid till 2020 and I am with the same employer who filed the H1 , is there a possibility to stay here legally even if amendment is rejected? My work location and role is changed from this H1

3. Can I move to H4 and my company file another fresh H1?

4. Any other possible work around?

thank you

I am sorry I am interested in knowing if anyone recently faced issues with 1121 soc code at wage level 4.
Most of the times i saw threads discussing about 1131 but not much about this one...

Regards

2 people from a big MNC got rejected because of this RFE and packed their bags to india yesterday. I am also awaiting my extension and terribly worried. Their codes were 15-1131 and 15-1121 (mine is this one too).. Both are with fragomen

hi eruith - could you please tell if it was a consulting MNC like Capgemini or an American company. I am due to file mine through Fragomen and hence worried.

I am also in same boat. My employer applied transfer using Fragomen and today got an update about RFE. They did not mention the reason and having issues contacting them.

Contacting Fragomen is a pain. They can be only be contacted over email and will never disclose the reason of RFE to you. In PP typically the RFE reasons get faxed to the attorney ( and many of friends and colleagues who applied in PP got it like that) but Fragomen won't reach out to the employer until they receive the hard copy which delays stuff for 2 additional weeks. I am simply pissed off with Fragomen .

It’s almost a month uscis updated the rfe in their portal and they have asked for documentation from my employer . The rfe is about the JD and associated roles and responsibilities and hence i have zero involvement to push them from my side . So effectively am stuck until they respond

Usually its the attorney who files the LCA. Companies provides them all the information needed. I have worked with 3 different companies, and attorneys. In all cases, immigration attorney filed for LCA.
