I have been working as a Computer Systems Analyst for a company for over a year . Employer filing H1B this year , I do not have a computer science degree ( have bachelor + masters in healthcare ) but have gained computer knowledge else where and was also trained by employer over the their proprietary software . I have gained all the required computer skills for the job and this will be portrayed by my employer in the H1B petition . USCIS OOH states that " computer degree is not mandatory for a CSA but must have gained the experience else where . " My question here is - does my 1 . 5 year experience with employer and software skill certifications bridge the gap of not having a computer science degree .
Rule of thumb is that the longer the question, the more difficult it is to be answered without a consultation. I suggest that you consult an immigration lawyer. Many of us offer free consultations. Find an attorney who you like and trust.
