First of all I thank every one for sharing their Visa interview experience , this is really helping people who are about to face visa interview.
I am a constant reader in this forum from past 3 months and it has really helped me lot.
I really appreciate people suggesting others to be confident in front of counselor , that really makes difference.
Please keep in mind that counselor is there only to screen people at the last stage to enter into US , hence donot panic or confuse once you reach interview counter.Be confident enough while providing V.O requested documents with out confusion or in hurry.
Be confident and prepare on the below topics
Current responsibilities(atleast 15 points or till he asks for next question)
US employer area of business.
US employer project details.(common question for all new Visa applicants)
US employer's client details(if any)http://www.immihelp.com/visas/h1b/h1-visa-interview-sample-questions-answers.html-answers/
I would like to share my visa interview experience.

21MAR2017: Scheduled interview : 10.00 AM , Entered U.S.Consulate and because of many applicants it took me 1.5 hrs to reach interview counter.
Discussions with Visa officer.
V.O and me exchanged our greetings.(me standing straight with out leaning to the counter)
V.O: Can I have your Passport and I797.
Me: Handed required documents (keep these 2 documents handy instead of digging into your file after reaching the counter)
