I got my Green Card approved under EB1C category about 17 months ago. Over these past few days, I have been approached with an opportunity which is specific to my branch of Engineering. The job responsibilities will involve managing projects, regulatory compliance and design engineering. The title will be "Sr. Development Staff".
The questions I have at this point of time are :
1) Can I switch to the job opportunity with a different job title as mentioned above, without violating the basis on which my Green card was approved?
2) If the answer is yes to the above question, do I inform my prospective employer anything about the category on which my Green card was approved?
3) Is this job switch going to affect my eligibility and compliance requirements at the time I will be ready to apply for citizenship?
The opportunity I am offered is challenging and is into core engineering domain and will be very focused on responsibilities demanding engineering experience.
I agree with my colleague's answers. There is no problem in you changing your job title or your job at this point.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
It all depends how an Immigration Officer perceives the GC filing by this company.
