Best advice I've ever received

  1. Go early go often (Thanks mom, my bladder is very grateful)
  2. Don't try to sell them by telling them why it is good for you. Tell them why it is good for them.
    "Please hire me, I really want to work in Fiji" vs. "You guys are really going to miss out if you don't hire me because I have a special skill that I bring to the job that you are unlikely to find elsewhere."
