Whether the position is EB2 or EB3 needs to be decided by hiring company based on its prior recruitment history. Above mentioned job code 13-2011 & 13-2051 falls under job zone 4 with SVP range of 7-8. For these positions the maximum education and work experience requirements allowed by DOL are bachelors degree plus 2 years of experience OR masters degree plus 0 year experience. Any job set up with requirement beyond these would call for business necessity requirements.
