Hello Folks,

I am planning to switch jobs in January using Ac21, and currently have an offer. The problem is that my approved I140 states my job title as Development Manager and the new one is System Analyst, although the job description matched a lot.

I am wondering if the issue of job title matters at the time of 485 adjudication or when you send a letter to USCIS stating that you invoked AC21.

Any comments or views would be appreciated.

Thanks

You need to prove that the new job is same or similar, and the job code is just one of the ways you could prove that. Other things to look at are job description, salary differential etc.

If your job description is similar, you could argue that the job is similar.

Go to the onet website.

Type your current title and look for related or similar occupational titles. You can also match your current title with your future job by matching job duties. By using this argument you can convince CIS that the job is in "similar" area.

Mine is pre-PERM labor (2004) with DOT CODE: 039.162-014. Anyone knows what will be the equivalent O*NET code?

Thanks. I believe "15-1021.00 - Computer Programmers" is the matching code.
