You're going to have an overseas business trip in a few weeks? Congrats, you are doing great there. Trust me, not everyone in the business industry can have a chance like you even in their entire career.
But don't get too caught up on that thought, it's still a business trip after all. You are now your company representative and you have a business to take care of. It will be stressful I know, but hang in there because it will get better from there.
And if you're looking around for some advice for your next business trip then look no further, because I will help you. Below you can find my simple guide to the most important thing you have to learn before leaving: packing for your trip. I hope you can find some useful information there and good luck:
1. Invest in a good business backpack.
Almost all airlines allow passengers to bring one piece of carry-on luggage, and a backpack is the perfect choice for that. A backpack is a versatile and compact piece of luggage to take on your flight because it's large enough to tote all of your essentials an easy to carry around. But remember to choose an appropriate backpack for business, don't bring your college backpack on your business trip, it's not right.
Now you have your backpack, let's get to the next step that is packing.
- Pack an extra set of clothing. An extra t-shirt or pair of pants can be packed at the bottom of your backpack to cushion other items you are carrying. And they can help you change into a fresh outfit in the event you spill something on your clothes.
- Take every electronic device that you need with you: your iPod/MP3 player/tablet, laptop, recorder, etc. They are permitted on board after takeoff and before landing so pack these in your backpack for some in-flight entertainment.
