  •  Not an H1-B (3+ / 0-)

    Not on its face, anyway.

    The company is filing for a permanent work eligibility status for a prospective (or current H1-B) applicant. H1-B itself is a temporary work authorization, typically for 1-3 years plus extensions as appropriate.

    Permanent status is H1-B on steroids, but also carries a greater burden on the employer. One of the requirements is that there are no qualified US workers who can adequately perform the job.

    One of the requirements for proceeding with a PERM application is that the company must advertise the position for 30 days in various specific places (including the local newspaper, if any, company-internal job opportunity listings, and at least three other locations if the position is a higher level).

    This company is following the law and doing a good-faith effort to identify qualified US workers to fill its position. If you are such a worker, apply -- if you meet the qualifications and you are available to accept work for this company, then you have precedence over the non-US worker they clearly already have in their sights.

    You can search around the 'net for PERM and/or DOL ETA of you want to review the specific requirements for this program.

    Not a lawyer. Speak to one if you need proper legal advice.

    •  Thanks for the clarification. (0+ / 0-)

      T Rowe Price has always seemed like a good company to me, so it doesn't surprise me that they are trying to follow the letter of the law.

      It would be nice to have a Kossack fill one or more of those positions.

        The job posting is a legal requirement when a company wished to bypass the U.S. workforce.

        For laughs, create a perfectly matching resume and submit.  The foreigner is a shoe-in.

        That job is reserved for a non U.S. citizen.  You are observing part of the reason why there are few jobs for U.S. citizens.
