Wife's sister in Philippines got job offer in US. How can she get permission to travel here to the US and work?

The offer is for a live in childcare/nanny position. The employer wants to sponsor my wife's younger sister to come to the US from Philippines and work as a live in nanny childcare giver. Unfortunately I heard there are alot of denials from Philippines as far as the Visa applications go. What are some tips to make sure approval is more likely? Thanks.

Update:

She is 22 years old and has a bachelor's degree in agriculture.

    It sounds like a scam to kidnap and sell her.Ask the FBI to check the person out.It seriously may be an Arab wanting to kidnap her.I AM SERIOUS !

    It won't happen.  I know 1 lady here who got a work visa for the U.S. on computers.  But she was Japanese Filippino. With a Master degree in business law. Spoke & wrote in Japanese like a Native, & spoke Korean also. So it takes special skills to get to the U.S. on a work Visa. Maid even supper maid does not make it.

    STOP TROLLING... we all know there are so many Flips here in the USA already that she knows the answer to that as some of her cousins have already done it.

    It isn't possible. The employer needs to sponsor her for a work visa. This employer does not qualify to do so.

    SCAM! NOT a valid job offer! There are no such visas for nannies, childcare workers, household help, caregivers, etc. No such "employer" meets qualification requirements to apply for any visa, either. Only qualified employers can apply for any employment visa for their qualified foreign employee.

    This is often a scam for illegal sex workers and such. There is no genuine job, and no possibility of any temporary visa.

    Then the employer would have to apply for her visa and have that approved (which won't happen). Same rando looking for cheap labor doesn't mean there's actually a visa available for that work. Not all jobs qualify for work visas and childcare is certainly one of them unless the employer goes through a proper agency. So tell your SIL to apply to work for an au pair agency and maybe they can sort it out that way.

    Visas are given to people who prove strong ties to their native country, so the US government will be sure that person doesn't try to remain in the US permanently.

    It is up to the sponsor to get the visa.

    Her prospective USA employer has to sponsor her for a work visa.  They also have to pay for it.  If whoever claims they are offering her a job wants her to send money to them for the visa then it's a scam.
