Job Offer with a US Employer

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a job offer with a US Employer. I work for a Tech company in Canada and our authorized reseller wants to bring me down to America and work in a sales related function. They want me to assist with sales, training on the product and customer service. We do not own our reseller. The only ownership we have is the licesense agreement for the reseller to sell our product and we can yank it at any time for any reason. Can anyone give me some ideas what visa I should go for? The reseller has asked me to help them find a visa that works to get me into the company.

From what I've read, the TN "computer analyst" category - because it has been abused in the past [employers would call just about anything even tangentially related to computers "analysis"] - is now very difficult to get. You can expect CBP to go over the offer letter with a fine-toothed comb and refuse anything that isn't very specifically actual computer systems analysis [which is a tiny, highly skilled sub-specialty of computer programming and would definitely not include sales and support].

They would also definitely be checking your training and credentials, and they'll want to confirm that the job actually requires the training [at least a Masters in Computer Science.]

Sounds more like a L.
