this project because I have specific skill-set)

Outcome: Maam, your Visa is approved.

I wore my company ID card. No documents were asked for or verified.

My suggestions:
I am a first time applicant, new to my company, and never traveled before. There were so many opinions about my VISA application from friends, colleagues and family. Just be confident (not over confident), dress up decently, speak politely, answer to the point, and dont be nervous (VISA denial is not the end of the world - keep that attitude). If your qualification, experience and purpose are in sync, I think it should work out. All the best !
