Palm Harbor, FL asked in Immigration Law for Florida

Q: How do I go about getting a green card as a professional?

I have been invited to work for a company in the US but don't have a work permit. I am currently in the US with a B1-B2 visa. I have been offered employment because I speak 5 languages and have a BA at the Academy of Arts in Amsterdam, Holland. I am a highly qualified administrator with 30+ years of experience in the fields of public relations and management. How would I go about applying for a green card or work permit? What category am I in (EB 3)? Can you advise what I should do?

Thank you.
