I am a Canadian currently working in the US under TN status as a Chemist performing lab work. I have a bachelors degree in Biology (which did not matter as the requirement only states that a degree is required- not a specific type).
Now onto my questions, I was offered a position with the parent company as a Technical Sales and Account Manager - or something along those lines, can be changed to help my status- the position requires detailed chemical knowledge and analysis in order to understand and perform the business role I would move into.
My question, do I need reapply for a new status as my role would change but the occupational category would stay the same? And is there precedent set to prove that I am eligible for a TN status even though my job does not fulfill the BLS handbook definition but requires in depth knowledge of the occupational category(chemist)?
Thanks in advance
