Hello and thank you for using our service. My name isXXXXX and I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help you. I just ask for two things: 1) Before you sign off, please remember to rate me positively as that is the only way that I am paid and your question does not close after you rate me so I can still answer additional questions without additional charge if you have follow-ups even weeks or months later; and, 2) IF I have bad news for you, please remember I am only the messenger. When you rate me, it is my service to you that you rate, not whether the news is good or bad. I will try my best to give you a solution, but sometimes the law does not have a good one.
Did you explain to the HR person that in order to be able to have authority to work, you need the letter and until that, you cannot honestly answer YES to that question? If so, did you ask them if it was a problem to answer YES because you will have that authorization soon? If not, would it be possible for them to write a letter of an OFFER of employment that may be enough for the TN?
This is what I wrote to her:
I am sorry for the delay. I had personal problems. I have not hear anything from them yet. I will call them today to see if I still have a chance for the job. and I will ask them for the letter as you told me.
I am assuming that because I have not hear from them my possibilities are diminishing.
No problem. Keep after them and let's be hopeful. I will be here.
Well yesterday I talked to the senior personnel liaison and she told me that they were no longer considering me for this position, and had no explanation about their decision. It is sad since I was the one that was trying to get in touch with her since a week a go. Then, she told me to call, what I think is a lawyer in the company, and she only said that they are having problems with the budget. Everything sounds so strange and it looks like they just wanted to stop dealing with me, since every time that I talked to them where always rushing and not able to talk to me.
Well I guess that is that. thank you for the help and hopefully I will not encounter any like this issue again
I already had the TN visa before so I have done the process. Maybe you can advise me on how to explain this change of visa to make it look as simple and easy and that is not something that the employer needs to do (since they only give a letter). Or when you read some of the emails that I sent, do you think they are perceived complicated?.
Also, should I keep applying for jobs in the same company? or in government companies? or do you think this will be a waste of time?
Yes, my last employer provided me with a letter and I came to mexico, make an appointment and got it. And yes this time apparently when I asked them about the letter they just told me that they do not do this. And now they say that they have budget problems, which sounds not true since they were the ones that contacted me on August 4 and after all emails they never mentioned anything about budget.
Please let me know if you have additional questions and please do not forget to rate my service to you (not the state of the law) as that is the only way that I can get credit for my assistance to you. Even after you rate the service, I can still answer additional questions for you without additional charge. If you do rate me positively, a bonus is always appreciated. If you would like to request me in the future, just go to http://www.justanswer.es/law/expert-guillermosenmartin/ and make sure you type: FOR GUILLERMO on the subject line. Thank you!
I am now again talking with another employer about the letter of employment. This time though is a lot easier. The company is small and private and the founder told me that they did the same with a Canadian citizen.
Now, I just want to make sure that the letter has all details. I understand that my profession as architect is listed in the NAFTA agreement and I need to prove my qualifications for this job. My undergrad is in Architecture and my diploma says architect so I am listing that profession in the letter. However, my employer asked me if it was ok if He writes planner instead, which I do have the studies but my undergrad diploma and grad diploma do not say I am a planner, both studies have planning involve that can be seen in the transcripts but since the diploma doesn't say that I do not want the US consulate person to reject my visa because of this.
Also, this position is part time and is going to pay the Stipend pay based on minimum wage/hr, which as I understand is ok but I know that the HB1 has a requirement to pay the average salary for this
Well then I will wait for your feedback
