I am in the US on a bussiness (B1/B2) visa. My I-94 expires in March, 2001.

I found an employer here in the US, who would like to hire me. The employer is an owner of
one man corporation. It is a car rebuilding bussiness, where I would work on automotive
electronics diagnostics, and refurbishing.

My education is an equivalent of M.S. in chemical engineering.

Is it be possible to change my status from to B1/B2 to H. If it is, then what steps I and
my perspective employer should take?

Thank you in advance. Andrey Taranov.

That can pose a problem unless you conceal it.

First step is to hire an immigration attorney.

The first thing to ask him would be if it is alright to have too much education. Your M.S.
in chemical engineering may be a bit high for an automotive mechanic.

Oh, and another word of caution: Make sure you don't end up in a "business" that
"rebuilds" and "refurbishes" _stolen_ autos.
