Yes...you are. I know few people with "3+2 education & 5 years of prior IT experience" have approved I-140 in EB2.

Good luck.

Good luck.
based on my experience 3yr degree is not eligible for Eb2 even though you have MSC. Please check with good attorney ... it doesnt matter on experience... Most 3yr degrees are getting in to audits(DOL) these days.

The 5 year experience should be progressive experience -- example , you started as Developer and than progressed to Team Lead .

Default EB2 Job Description..

And remember, it is the job that should need a BS+5 or MS rather than applicant's qualifications. If you employer can prove the job needs are for an EB2 candidate, you should definitely opt for EB2.

It is the employer's needs and need to have certain educational and experience requirements that qualifies a candidate for EB2 or EB3.

SO, Even if you have a Masters and PHD with 20 yrs of experience- the job requirements are for bachelors and 2 yrs experience, that's what determines the category.

Typically a requirement of Bachelors (4yr deg) and 5 years experience qualfies for EB2 (Check with attorney/ different for different fields). But if the job does not require bachelors or doesnt require 5 yrs experience after bachelors- then EB2 cannot be justified.

So, AGAIN- It is not what you -as a candidate has in terms of education and experience, it is the requirement of the job.

The eligibility for EB2 is determined by the qualifying academic and experience requirements needed by the job (as listed in the ad).

An independent educational services evaulator can evaulate your 3 + 2 years of acads. as equivalent to 4 yrs.

If you are asking whether you have the credentials that qualify you for EB2 category (given that the job ad. requires a candidate with EB2 qualifcations), YOU DO QULAIFY.

This is the most precise and appropriate answer.

Where did you get that from. what do you mean experience 4+1 etc. I meant education 3+3 or 4+2 - first figure the basic degree and second the master's .. hope it is clear now

Yes, the assumption is there implicitly, that you applied only for a job fitting your qualifications
