Re: T1 Visa (was Illegal interview question?)
Not always as easy as that. An ex co-worker of mine went to the border >to get his visa after being hired by the Marriott chain as a systems >analyst. He was unable to get it despite several years experience >because he had no formal education in the field. Efforts by Marriott >and himself for months proved fruitless. This person was at one time my >supervisor which I mention only because I was able to cross the border >with different credentials but had a diploma from the University of >Alberta.Well, being able to show you have "formal training" goes a long way to the folks at the border, it seems to say more than just having "experience" - they seem to think you need a diploma or degree to be a systems analyst, that you cant just go learn it on the job. Also, there have been reports of crack-downs on TN1's, because so many people are heading south...it also depends on the border guard. You meet up with someone who's having a bad day and they'll not think twice of putting you thru the wringer, just for the hell of it.
