You should always assume formal unless you have been advised otherwise. It's generally ok to end up a little overdressed, but it's not ok to end up underdressed. However, software companies can vary. It is going to depend greatly on the culture of the company. If you can, do some research on the culture before the interview. Is there a "team" page on their ...

The scope of your course means what is covered by your course. You'd be expected to be able to answer regarding the topics/subjects that you will study, and probably talk about things like how it will be structured, assessed and the length of the course.

This will probably be a visitor visa, since you will submitting documentation from the employer about the steps needed to compleate the job interview process. What they will exactly write in the comments field is hard to say, but in some form it will express the purpose of the visit.

You must either be employed at a similar job and your I-485 has been pending for 180 days, or the company that petitioned you must still be planning to employ you, and you plan to accept, after you immigrate. So to answer your literal question, no, you don't need to be employed, and don't even need to be in the US, but in that case, the employer that ...

Based on my australian experience, a formal suit is the best choice unless stated otherwise in an interview invitation.

Welcome to the world of embassies - I'm still waiting on a reply from the British one from early 2009 ;) All you can really do is persist. If it's possible to visit the embassy in person, that sometimes helps, but otherwise look for other outlets that they might have (not all will), including: Facebook page twitter multiple phone numbers linkedin contacts ...

As with any visa application in any country, being declined can be based on many factors. Your letter from Immigration New Zealand would advise you of the reasons, and what to do next, including any right you have to appeal, review, or access its records (e.g., of your interview). It would also contain a copy of the immigration instructions which you may ...

I got my visa in the German general consulate in Amsterdam (being NOT-EU citizen, but living in the Netherlands). I didn't have to attend any special interview and all the conversation was about the application form itself (all the info is already there), working contract and salary (as a requirement for the Blue Card). Make sure to make a call or better ...

I was in the same situation as you a couple of years ago. The questions they asked were mostly about the documents. There was nothing tricky or anything. I applied for a German visa from the US and I'm not a US citizen. I just had to show a valid residence permit for the US and the rest of the documents were the same as mentioned on their website. The ...

Since the country where you are applying from is handling applications from multiple countries, they must have a bigger document check-list compared to other embassies and those documents will serve as a proof for everything written on your application. When you go for an in-person interview, generally they try to ensure if you really are the person who is ...

LinkedIn is the best way to get a Job for professionals. There are chances (very low) that you get a interview call from Linked despite having no PR. This would require your skills in particular field of work which might attract employers to contact you. There are n direct way of getting a job offer from another country if you are not worth it

Yes and no. Yes, it does signal immigration intent on your family’s part which does mean that your (wife’s) paperwork should be spotless. No, past experience has been that it really doesn’t increase your risk significantly as the wait time for family petitions is quite long (over ten years) and it’s recognized that family petitioners are some of the ...

Enter more than one given name if your passport shows more than one item under "given names". Later in the process the web puts "Given Name" and "Surname" together and asks you to confirm that this makes up your full name. Also if you delete the text in the given name box, the web site shows you an example:

Others may give other suggestions, and your US university should give you advice as well, but I'll focus on your last line "Thank you sir." This is understood as gracious acceptance of the officer's decision, but gracious acceptance won't help you much in this or any American legal matters. You will get better results by being polite but assertive. To be ...
