I’m a data scientist and I applied for an H1B last year then got an RFE for a specialty occupation after I got selected. My evidence got rejected though later. This year I applied again for a H1B. I got selected but last week I got the same RFE again!

Are there any data scientist who are having a similar experience? Any advice on the evidence prep. Btw my job category is a operations research analyst. I’m curious wats urs?

    Too bad. It happened to my cousin too. He is a hair scientist. He uses sophisticated tools to trim hair to various lengths and heights.

    RFE about specialty occupation for me too my official title is an integration engineer..work is similar to a data engineer besides the fact that I'm highly client facing and responsible for integration architecture + overall product implementation

    I'm not a data scientist, but have a US masters, and work on autonomous cars. Got hit with a specialty occupation RFE last year. Lawyers took care of it and the application went through.

      I haven’t asked that but I’m pretty sure that u can’t change ur job description when replying to an RFE. You can only expand on it.

    I work as a Data Scientist and had a similar issue with my H1. Got my undergrad and work experience evaluated through USCES evaluation. This was recommended by my lawyers. Got my H1 amend/renewal in a week with premium processing.
