Dear Blind community,

I joined Apple as a software engineer on H-1B transfer receipt and recently received a specialty occupation RFE. My lawyer requested me to provide more detailed info about my role and responsibilities so that she can prepare the RFE response. I just wanted to reach out and see there are any software engineers here who had similar situation and was able to get their transfer approved. Are there resources that I can look at to increase my chance of approval? Does including articles about the product that your working on or getting recommendation letter from your professor or high level industry professional help?

Role: software engineer
Yoe: 3
Education: BS in computer science from decent top 20 school in the US
Location: Bay Area
TC: 200k

    Lots of people get the RFE but if your degree really matches your job (seems to) you should be fine.

      Hi, thanks for your response. Were you in a similar situation? If so, was it as simple as just filling out the form that your attorney gave you and letting him/her take care of it?

    Also genrally for bachelors USCIS raises rfe more often just statistically saying ... if the response is well drafted with all the docs should not be a problem

      When you say all the docs, do you mean supporting evidences such as recommendation letter, other similar resumes for my position, and etc?
