Educational degree and job experience are both in two different fields. Can i still apply for h1b?

San Jose, CA |

Hi,
I have a Btech degree (4 years) in Biotechnology and 3 years of experience in software industry.
I have been in US for an year now on H4 visa. Currently I got a job in a software company and they will be applying for my H1b visa .
Will my education degree be a problem in this case?

  1. Probably not as both are in technology or science. We would need to review your transcript and job position


  2. All depends on the job retirements and the position. Your employer's attorney will be in better position to advise you. Good luck.
