1st PERM certification by U.S. Department of Labor

On Friday July 29, 2005 I received my first certification by the U.S. Department of Labor from a PERM case. My office prepared the application for Permanent Employment Certification (ETA Form 9089) for the client whose occupation is "Clinical Operation Director". Since PERM began on March 29, 2005 I have spoke to numerous clients about PERM. Many have been waiting to see if PERM works prior to applying. Well, it does work! My client is extremely happy with his certification. The next step is to prepare his application for permanent residency and EB-2 application. We should have these prepared and ready for concurrent filing prior to the end of August. So to recap PERM application submitted to DOL in April; certification in July; application for permanent residency and EB-2 by August. The system is working and it is a major improvement over the old paper based system. This is “Great Work” by the DOL PERM team and by my immigration case manager Andy.
