板友寫信來詢問 徵得同意 直接回答在板上以幫助更多人 "我也是140等待中,跟您一樣是F1-STEM OPT第一年,目前在大學當博後,想請問您幾件事 ,不知道您方不方便分享經驗。 1. 我F1簽證6月到期,兩年多沒回家很想回去,之前理解是OPT沒辦法當簽證有效出入 境,還是我理解有誤?" 這點可以參照各個學校國際事務處的指引 既然在學校工作以學校人員回答為主 這裡引用德州一所學校的指引 https://rice.app.box.com/s/hpie38hanjla7w9o56q8ovgw7u5z4i8o F-1 students authorized for STEM OPT can travel outside the U.S. and re-enter provided they have all of the required documents, which are outlined on the Travel While on STEM OPT slide. Application for F-1 visa renewal during STEM OPT can be risky. Please meet with an OISS advisor and refer to http://www.ice.gov/sevis/travel/faq_f2.htm#_Toc81222042for further discussion of travel during STEM OPT (or travel while STEM OPT application is pending). "2. 關於NIW的要求,我以為是要能夠繼續在研究領域做貢獻(發文章什麼的),所以才去學校當博後,請問業界scientist/engineer也可以嗎?文章發表怎麼辦呢?" 這個律師有回答過: 1. During the I-140 pending time, should I stick to the same employer? If I got an offer from the other company, could I switch employers while I-140 is pending? Given that the job role/title are the same. Since your I-140 is self-petitioned, you can change jobs as long as you continue to be engaged in the same field of endeavor as that which serves as the basis for your I-140 petition, and your work continues to be of national importance. To meet the “national importance” requirement, it will be best if your official job duties include conducting research, publishing papers in peer-reviewed journals and presenting at professional conferences, etc. 上面這句話就回答了 另外如果在業界持續有跟學界互動 發剩下來的paper我印象中也可 2. During the I-140 pending time, could I switch the job field? An example is that if I got an offer from a company which is not the same field as stated in my I-140 application, is it allowed to do so? This would involve field/job title/company change. No, you should not leave the field that was claimed in your petition. We generally recommend that clients remain engaged in the same field as that which serves as the basis for the I-140 and that the work continues to be of national importance for at least 6 months after they receive their green card. "會有2的問題是因為其實我博班就很想申請業界研發工作,但是律師那時候建議留在能繼續發表文章的位置,所以做了博後,但最近越來越自我懷疑,怕博後當太久轉業界有難度,才有這個疑問,知道有些人是在公司申請NIW的" 我的看法:律師的立場總是走最保守的立場 現在可以確定留在原位子風險最小 然而去業界做研發 根據上述我的律師的說法 也是在national interest做貢獻 所以就是風險取舎 看你是要最保守 還是願意去業界闖蕩 建議你跟原律師好好討論 或是找第二個律師尋求第二意見 我個人的話是會直接去業界 人的青春有限 但如果你現在project很好 做出來以後人人搶著聘僱 那就繼續做也無妨 "怕博後當太久轉業界有難度": 這跟領域有關 如果是CS就是無敵 如果非CS的話 我確實聽過我公司的人說過他不hire post doc的人 如果生物領域的話 好像每個人都有post doc經驗 所以這題真的是depends "知道有些人是在公司申請NIW的': 沒錯 買了雙重保險 PERM+NIW看誰快 "本來想在博後這個位置等到整個綠卡申請走完,但看著485的處理時長真的很擔心得把所有的OPT都給博後了,結果得不到業界經驗。" 人的青春有限... 三年其實很多 就跟婚姻大事一樣 年輕的時候交往三年沒結果還好 過了一定年紀 三年就變得太多 合則來 不合則不要浪費彼此時間 三年如果放在三十歲 轉眼就要三十五 而這剛好正是求職上的黃金轉換期 半年一年都不要浪費 一跳槽一轉職就是30%到100%的起跳 但因為身分關係被綁住了很可惜 那就看你的博士後經驗對日後你轉往業界有沒有很大的助益 然後評估值不值得為了 這個職位用盡三年青春 ※ 引述《eltonsmile (Grey's Anatomy season10)》之銘言: : 這邊提供一個NIW-EB2的文件撰寫時程 : 最大的忠故是 越早開始寫這些文件越好 : 因為有很多事情要處理跟溝通 越早處理到最後階段越好 : 不要說為了等H1B或是其他有的沒的 而想說晚一點開始沒有關係 : 跟時間賽跑其實是很累人的 : 最佳狀態是全部都準備好 只剩下最後的一鍵送出而已... : 等到全部準備好也半年過去了 : 我最大的後悔是沒有及早開始申請 之前想說讓公司出錢自己可以省$4500 : (或是賭注H1B會抽到...結果兩次都沒抽到 另外公司PERM辦得超級慢 O-1也沒很保險) : 現在看來 早一點有綠卡 早一點可以跳槽 轉職 換領域等等 : 不用在同一家公司或領域被綁住多年 : 我做得好的是可能推薦信很幸運很快準備好 另外一開始文件也很快寫好 : 所以petition letter很快就出來了 : 做得不好就是應該在OPT一開始 就開始撰寫這些文件 另外一開始擔心OPT期間送件 : 會影響STEM-OPT的申請 (移民企圖) 但後來跟律師討論起來 似乎走CP不會影響 : 所以根本可以OPT一開始就送件之類的 (這一點有待跟律師討論) : Timeline : 2021.11.19 Pay $2250 to lawyer.
