Oh, then what do I do? There shouldn't be any problem. My last company got my work permit just fine.

I asked. It's a problem with the job description and your major. Your university major was in linguistics. Your last job was as a translator so that's fine. However, this time you want to work as a Marketing Assistant.
zhè yǒu shénme guānxì ？gōngsī juéde wǒ hégé jiù xíng la 。
What does that have to do anything? The company thinks that I'm qualified for the job. That should be enough.
