These are 4 things I  thought would be   useful for otherinterviewees to know
#1Be Prepared
Digging through your desk the day of take-off to find your   resume isn’t a good idea
If the company asksfor paperwork & stuff,  get it done...early!
If the company asksfor paperwork & stuff,  get it done...early!                And early doesn’t mean a few               ...
#2Bring stuff to ea                 t!
#2Bring stuff to ea                 t!         his m ight    OK, t       be be tter

So bring some source of energy...  otherwise you’ll end up eating a lot of these
Oh, and none of theseYou cant afford to crash,you have to look good at       all times
#3Pac k light
Take only the absolute necessary...You’ll get through security quicker and        your head will hurt less
But bring something to keep you    entertained on flights...      Books!                      Tunes!  Some really good ones!
