Hi,
I’m a Canadian citizen based in Atlanta, GA. I work as a Senior Financial Analyst under TN status, “ACCOUNTANT” professional category. I have a US Masters Science degree in Finance. I have a Bachelors’ degree in Accounting & Finance from NZ. I also have 10 years professional working experience (7 in US and 3 overseas) before my current position.
The current prevailing wage for Accountants and Financial Analysts from online wage database is as follows:

My current salary is higher than the Level 3 prevailing wage for both Accountants & Financial Analysts.
Based on the above facts, would I be eligible for an EB2 category in the Labor certification process.
Thanks,

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.
