    1. Does anyone have any advice for preparing for a cross-country move? (BC, Canada -> Quebec, Canada)

      Hello friends! I'm interviewing with a company in Montreal, which is across the country from where I live now. I want to be able to answer questions about relocating, and to sound like I have...

      Hello friends! I'm interviewing with a company in Montreal, which is across the country from where I live now. I want to be able to answer questions about relocating, and to sound like I have somewhat of a plan. I don't want to come across as ill-prepared? So, I've been trying to do some research on renting, flights, interview questions, etc.

      Even if I don't get this job, I still think might try to move out East one day. Do you have any words of wisdom that might help me make this dream a reality?

      (EDIT: I'll try to respond to people asap, but the interview is on Monday so I'm trying to frantically prepare, heh. That's my biggest priority... I really want to impress them, hah.)

      I'm interested in all responses, but if the answer is "well" or better and the following are factors that contributed to that sense of well-being, could you divulge your job industry, if...

      I'm interested in all responses, but if the answer is "well" or better and the following are factors that contributed to that sense of well-being, could you divulge your job industry, if applicable, and/or the Canadian city where you currently reside? (If privacy-minded or jealously guarding a secret utopia, province would suffice. Thank you.)

      About me: besides the current political and lazy-to-anti-intellectual climate of the US, I'm pressingly concerned about global warming; after a dozen years of living in and around refreshing Seattle (compared to southern California), I had to give in and buy an air conditioner this summer. Anecdotally, it seems to be a trend.
