Find a company that matches your values
If you’re planning to travel for an extended time, become an e-resident of the country you’re visiting before you go. This will allow you to open a bank account online there. It’s much easier to open a bank account in person, especially if you don’t have local ID or address documentation yet.
But if your country won’t grant you e-residency, or if you’re planning to travel through multiple countries, it’s best to open your bank account at home before you go. Chances are your bank will be able to help you get set up with an international bank account (though they may charge a fee).
If neither of these options work for you, you can always withdraw cash from the ATM using a debit card. Most ATMs have English options and there are no extra fees for international withdrawals if your bank is part of the Global ATM Alliance .
In every case, do your research to find a bank that matches your values . You may want to choose a smaller bank that invests in the local community, or one that helps educate people about the dangers of overspending. Look for a bank with low fees and good interest rates too—you’ll earn more money sitting in your account than you would spending it on ATM withdrawals.
You’ll also need to follow the international laws for reporting suspicious activity.
Make sure your money is safe from theft
If someone steals your wallet, they have immediate access to most of your money. Cryptocurrencies can’t be physically stolen, but if someone gains access to the keys for your wallet address they can take all of it too. It’s up to you to make sure your money is as difficult to steal as possible.
You can use a hardware wallet like the Ledger Nano S or Trezor Wallet for storing your cryptocurrencies, or keep them in an online wallet linked to your bank account (if you want easy access to your funds). But whatever method you choose, make sure you keep it safe—thieves can find many ways to access your money.
You may also want to use a password manager like LastPass or 1Password to generate and store strong passwords for every website. This way, even if someone gains access to your email they won’t be able to take over your entire online identity.
Research the company and its products before the interview.
Check out the company website and its products online, if possible.
If your interviewer asks you to explain one of the company’s products, you should feel confident in your knowledge of that product and of others like it. It is also a good idea to have some idea about what they do or how they work in general terms.
Research the interviewer and the company.
Just as you would do some background research on a new acquaintance, spend some time learning more about your interviewer. What’s her title? How long has she been with the company? If she’s wearing a ring or other jewelry, what does it look like and where was it made? If you were referred to the position by someone at your company, you should be able to get her name and title from that person (you didn’t think HR would give out personal information like that, did you?). Don’t be afraid to ask questions about how she got started in the industry or what she enjoys most about working for the company.
Read over your resume and be prepared to discuss it.
If you have a printed copy of your resume, be sure to bring it with you. If not, write down the main points so that you can refer to them as necessary. If asked about something such as a job title or education level, explain what happened in as few words as possible. You don’t want to take up time reiterating even the most basic facts about yourself.
This is especially important in corporate situations where you may be meeting with higher-level managers who are more accustomed to business dress codes. Appearance matters, and if your interviewer is judging you based on what you wear (and you can bet she is), you should dress appropriately.
If you’re not sure what’s expected, call the company or ask a friend who works there if they have any idea. Even if your interviewer hasn’t told you directly, it won’t hurt to ask for her opinion of how your current outfit compares to what people in your field typically wear.
Whether or not you’re nervous, it’s important to always behave in a professional manner when interacting with your interviewer(s). If your hands are shaking or your voice is quivering, be sure to acknowledge it and continue on as best you can (hint: practice makes this a lot easier).
Start by building your team.
There are three ways to obtain Pokémon in Pokémon GO: capturing them in the wild, evolving them from lower-powered creatures, and hatching them from eggs. The relative ease of catching new Pokémon varies wildly among each evolutionary path—and knowing which route is right for your team may be the most important decision you make in creating a successful Poké squad.
First, you need to know that the strength of a wild Pokémon is tied directly to its CP—short for Combat Power. So as you can see, whether or not you’re able to capture a new pocket monster as it roams your map (and depending on whether it runs away from battle) directly links to the creature’s strength.
The second thing you must know is that the higher a Pokémon’s CP, the further you have to go in your evolution chain to reach its “evolutionary relatives.” (For instance, the Pidgey family starts at 1,000CP and ends at 1,600CP.) As such, evolving early might not be the best choice—but then again, powering up too soon might leave you with a relatively weak creature.
The third thing to understand is this: Pokémon GO places an emphasis on candy, which basically takes the role of EXP in previous Pokémon games. For example, if you’ve captured 10 Rattatas and wan’t to power one of them up to a more powerful creature—you’ll need 10 Raticates’ worth of candy.
So you see, the answer to this question isn’t so black and white. Here’s what I suggest: Go for whatever you’d like in the beginning—but when it comes time to level one up, focus on capturing Pokémon that are one evolutionary step away, and use only the candy they provide.
Once you feel like your team is strong enough to make an impact on opponents (literally), move onto capturing gyms.
Don’t be afraid of taking over enemy-controlled areas—in fact, it’s encouraged. Here are some tips to keep in mind: First, you’ll need to know that it takes just as many Pokémon to claim a gym as it does for an opposing team to take it down—so if your group can pull together, well, then you’ve got this.
Create a business plan for yourself. Think about your friends, family, and others you know. How would they describe you?
I would like to think that people would look at me as a hard worker dedicated to success. I believe this because of my willingness to work long hours through school, volunteering, and working for nonprofits. These experiences have helped shape the type of person I am today. I have developed a strong work ethic that has made me the person I am, and given me the drive to pursue my dreams.
Describe your childhood neighborhood or community in terms of diversity, family life, recreation facilities, etc. What was special about it?
Many people would describe our neighborhood as primarily African American. We lived on a very quiet street with small yards and mature, big trees. I think one of the most special aspects of our neighborhood was that it was mostly families who had lived there for many years. It was never new or trendy, but instead allowed families to settle down without being disrupted by new residents every few months.
What are your interests and what kind of activities did you take part in when you were a high school student?
I loved to work. I worked hard through high school and became accustomed to working for long hours and handling many jobs at once. My interests span from food and clothing to social justice issues, but I always found time to enjoy the things that mattered to me the most.
What is your favorite food or meal? Why is it your favorite, and what does it say about you as a person?
My answer for this may seem cheesy to some, but I have always loved lasagna. It’s a classic “made from scratch” meal that isn’t too difficult to make. I like to make lasagna because it’s one of the only foods that my family doesn’t complain about. It’s also a meal that typically takes several hours to complete, which is usually enough time for me to get other work done.
What were your favorite school subjects in high school? Why?
My favorite subject was probably government. I have always been interested in politics, but learning about our government’s history helped me understand how everything fits into place. I also liked finishing the year with a project that allowed for open debate and presentation of ideas. It was easy to conduct research, learn from others, and contribute my own skills to the class projects.
