Another category is called the 2nd preference immigrant worker, where you are a member of a profession that requires an advanced degree, you could also have exceptional ability in the sciences, arts, or business, or you are someone seeking a national interest waiver.
Another category is the 3rd preference immigrant worker, for persons who are skilled worker s.

Persons who are unskilled workers whose jobs need less than 2 years training or work experience.
