1. I would like to inform you that I received an offer for a summer internship from LAM Research in California. I will work on R.F./Antenna that is entirely related to my ongoing Ph.D. program. I would like to know if this internship program will add a positive impact on my application or not?
Yes, it will have a great positive impact on your case.
Progressive work experience means having at least 5 years of work experience demonstrating growth and advancement in the relevant field.
3. I have a number of media coverages and fellowship awards. Will they have an impact on the petition and increase my chance of approval?
It may have an impact on the petition and increase your chance of Approval
Yes, having job experience of five years and more will strengthen your petition. But it’s not absolutely necessary in this case.
5. I do not have a master’s degree but I have more than 10 years of post-graduate job experience which means a Bachelor’s degree plus 10 years of job experience. Please let me know if it is applicable for eligibility?
If a person has at least five years of progressive work experience following completion of a bachelor’s degree, he is technically eligible to apply for NIW. If your experience is not coming from a US-based industry and you do not possess a foreign or Master’s degree, your chances are very slim.
NIW application requires mainstream or industry job experience. Remote work experience will not be applicable.
TA/RA counts as academic or research experience and definitely not an industry job experience.
Yes, you are required to work in the same field that benefits the country's national interest. If you change areas, you risk having your I-485 denied if it’s still under process.
