Applying B1/B2 for the second time
I attended my first B1 visa interview on May 1st week and it got rejected. I am an experience designer in a US based product company. I believe it’s because I didn’t explain the purpose of the visit very well.

I have applied for it again and my interview is in 3 days. I got a promotion as a senior associate after completing the DS-160 and scheduling appointments. So, there’s no change in the details I have entered in the new DS-160 except that I’ve made it as an one week trip (It was 2 weeks in the previous application). I am well prepared right now for the interview.

However, I am concerned if they are going to reject right away because the situation hasn’t changed this time as per my DS-160. Should I produce the proof of my promotion and pay hike in the beginning itself to clarify? Or, will it be considered inappropriate and impact the chances of the visa approval negatively?
