|Background:||Citizen of Canada.|
|TN Category:|| Graphic Designer
|Job title / duties:||The applicant’s employer was an ad agency, and her job title was Experience Designer. The position involved the creation of the user experience elements for customer websites, applications, and digital experiences. The challenge here was establishing that the position offered fell under one of the available TN occupational categories. Based on the position’s duties, which involved visual designs, we believed it could be classifiable under the Graphic Designer category. To prove this argument with USCBP, we supplemented the application with research showing that these duties were consistent with those of the Graphic Designer profession.
|Education:|| The applicant possessed a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Political Science. As her degree was not specifically related to the TN category, we included additional proof of her qualifications in the field including previous experience letters, a certificate showing completion of a user experience course, and copies of her portfolio. We also supplemented the application with research showing that a degree in the field was not required for a Graphic Designer position, and that individuals could also qualify based on training and on-the-job experience.
