How can I demonstrate to the USCIS that the position is a specialty occupation?

In determining whether a position is a specialty occupation, the USCIS looks at various factors:

  • the nature and complexity of the specific job duties
  • the job description for the position
  • the qualifications of other persons employed in the position
  • the advertisements used to recruit for the position
  • the advertisements and job orders used by employers in the same industry in seeking to fill the postion and
  • the positions requirement as reflected in the Department of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook.
