A specialty occupation requires: (a) theoretical and practical application of a body of highly specialized knowledge; and (b) attainment of a bachelor’s or higher degree in a specific specialty as a minimum for entry into the occupation. OOH and O*Net – the most common resources describing various occupations in terms of the knowledge, skills, and abilities required is widely referenced for H1B petitions. OOH entry for a certain occupation at times states that a bachelor’s degree is required but lists multiple acceptable fields of study. When petitioners use multiple educational prerequisites for a specialty occupation position, it is highly likely that USCIS issues an RFE. Our experts, in addition to the technical complexity analysis of the position, will also include a customized write up on how two or more fields of study used as educational prerequisites for the proffered position are related to each other and therefore knowledge in any one of the listed specialties would allow the beneficiary to perform the duties of the position reasonably well.
