Mount Prospect, IL asked in Immigration Law for Illinois

Q: Need an attorney advice on EB (Employment Based) Immigration

Hi there, I'm a student (28 years). Currently on F-1 status, holding my I-20 status almost last 5 years. Meantime I'm working at subcontracting company under CPT (Curricular Practical Training) last 4 years as an estimator (soon to be project manager). My employer is happy to help with my sponsorship, but me and him both have no clue about immigration stuff. I have bachelor degree on mechanical engineering from Russia (but I'm not Russian), which has nothing to do what I'm doing for the company. The main question is is it possible for me to apply for EB-2 or EB-3 immigration visa?

Edited for below answers (didn't know how to reply): I was born in Mongolia and still have Mongolian Citizenship.

Additional Question: Can I apply for experienced worker? Because I'm working in this company for 4 years.

Thank you in advance

A: You will need to schedule a consultation with an experienced attorney who can look in details in your qualifications and the position. Generally, it can be done but it will depend on your country of birth, highest education achieved, the financial position of the employer, your proposed duties, etc.
