Question proof of work experience

I am planning to apply as a skilled worker but all my work

experience is not connected with my profession. I have a good

education from my origin country but have never worked in my field

as I have been living in the USA ever since I graduated. I have 13

months of experience as a cleaning supervisor and 12 months of

experience as a truck dispatcher. My stay in the USA is still

legal (F1 visa), however, I work without having authorization.

Both my employers hired me as an independent contractor and

provided with a miscellaneous income tax form-1099 although I worked

full-time. In addition the annual salary is placed in a blank

entitled "nonemployee compensation". My question is, can I use

this form as a support with reference letters from my employers as

it somewhat contradicts with the reference letters saying that I

was employed in full-time hours? Is it necessary to provide my

income tax as a proof of being employed? And does it matter if one

has work experience different than education? Thanks in advance

for any respond to my post.

Hi user_ds

I am not sure about your work experience if you have been independent contractor (even if you work 40/week), because there is a rule:

*** You must have at least one continuous year of full-time paid work experience or the equivalent in part-time continuous employment ***

and maybe you have to be an employee - not a contractor -

I hope other guys will tell you more.
