I am currently on an H1-B visa on behalf of a Software company. I have a
B.S degree in Electrical Engineering and about 8 years of professional
experience in this area. I am about to begin the process of applying for
Labor Certification. I have 'heard' that not having a Master's degree may
prove a hindrance to my case for LC. ( The job only required a B.S as the
minimum degree with 2-3 years of experience when I applied for it). What if
any impact would my Educational qualifications ( only BS ) have in the DOL
processing my application?
There is no reason for lack of MS to be a hindrance. As long as you possess
specialized experience, and the job being certified requires that
experience, you should be fine. In fact, I personally believe experience
in most cases may be better than a graduate degree.
