Having my first H1B stamping appointment in my home country (Vietnam) and getting worried. I had my H1B changed of status back in 2020 and since then have been promoted (analyst to senior data scientist). The promotion is natural progression although not immediately obvious from the job titles. How should I prepare to be grilled on this matter? Everything else stays the same (location, actual job duties, etc.) Salary slightly increased with the progression. Thank you fishes!!!
