Hi

I am about to start my process for green card. Not the best of times to file, but I absolutely cant afford to lose more time. My filing would be in EB3 as I have a 3 year bachelor degree. I have a professional accounting degree also but I dont think I would be making use of it. My approach right now is of least risk.

What I am little concerned about is the designation / job code to use. Though I have worked as a Programmer Analyst till now for 8 years now with some elements of Business Analysis - my idea is file as a Systems Analyst (Onet code - 15-1051.00 ). The reasons are two fold - one, to allow me to work as Business / Financial Analyst when I decide to change my role couple of years down the line and second, to limit the number of responses to advert given present market conditions.

I am not sure if what I am trying to do has any risks. My lawyer suggests that I should put only and only those elements in advert, for which I can provide experience letters at I 140 stage. So the exact business analysis elements may be difficult to get, but I see the job description at Onet site can quite fit my profile well. (I have done requirements analysis in my last job)

Also I am wondering if I need this approach at all. Like if I would want to work as a Business Analyst later on, I could file an another labor in anycase - the time lags to get 485 cleared are so long that I can get another labor approved before I apply for 485. This way right now I can get the priority date crystallized first up and care about job role later on.

However I dont know if the other reason - to prevent too many applications by posting this job code is a pragmatic one or not.

Please advise. Thanks much in advance.
