What constitutes 'change of career'?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys - I have my GC and now I'm wondering what constitutes a change of career? So, if I decide to move into a new job, how similar does it have to be? Does it have to be the same/similar job in the same field, or can I do the same/similar job in a different field (i.e. move from project management in construction to project management in healthcare) or stay in the same field but do a different job? Any ideas? Also, does a career / field change impact anything other than naturalization down the road??

P.S. I have been in the US for 9 years and in my current GC job for 2 years.

Your job has no bearing on your GC. You no longer have any restrictions on your job. H1B is over.

Green Card? As in Legal Permanent Residence? You can accept whatever job you want. It doesn't affect naturalization.
