Form-DS-230

For question 32 on Form-DS-230 it states the following:

In what occupation do you intend to work in the United States?

I'm helping my fiancee complete the forms requested by the embassy in her country and we're stumped on question #32 on Form-DS-230, would it reflect negatively if we write down "Intend To Finish School?" But she would first take some English courses to strengthen her English, so it wouldn't be right away.

I think this question is correspond to the Form DS-156 Q36: "Do you intend to work in the US?"(which is brought to the consulate at the interview time).

IMHO it is a confirmation of "intention to apply for work authorization".

So, If she wants EAD, and her current occupation is not a licensed occupation(such as architecture, nurse, lawyer etc.), write down her latest job title on DS-230 Q23.

otherwise, "Undecided" is a safe answer.

Patch97777, what is your fiancee's country? This form is not required in most embassies but I think I read somewhere some embassies requires it. (just want to check).

Does your fiancee have an idea of which job position she would like to apply for after her English classes? Because "intend to finish school" doesn't really answer the question in the form...

She is studying in school for a degree in management, would "management" suffice?

My fiancee's country is Romania, and they(Bucharest Embassy) sent her Form DS-230 to complete and return. Also on Form DS-156 for Q32 we wrote down "WITH WORK AUTHORIZATION, EMPLOYER UNKNOWN" and for Q33 "UNKNOWN". Is this fine?

Thank you guys for helping me, I really appreciate the time you guys take in responding back, thanks!

Does it look better for the consulate to hear and see that my fiancee has a specific place prepared to work when she comes here in the U.S.?

Yes that's fine. For the job question, just write "undecided" as goatherder said, or the job title she will look for after her studies.
