What are the things I must bring with me to the ESL job interview? Passport, hard copy of B.A. diploma, a resume -- even if there is nothing on it relevant to teaching ESL? All these things, other stuff as well?

Also, for Bogota, will a cashmere top coat sometimes be appropriate for the weather?

I'm wondering this as well. I think there is a thread somewhere, perhaps in the general forum, about what documents you should bring. I would think a resume is required whether or not you have teaching experience. Did you complete your CELTA or TEFL yet? If you have, that should be on there.

The resume: what if you've been out of work for a while? Like, a long while? There has been sustained mass unemployment in the US since the financial collapse of 2008.

What do employers want to see on a resume?

Remember, in Colombia they use a CV, not a standard American resume. Even if you haven't worked in a while I would still suggest you create you resume in CV form with the dates and names of your employers, job title and one or two sentences outlining your job function(s). You should also be listing your education, certificates, awards, etc, not to mention your objective, which in this case I would assume is to be an English teacher. I'm not sure how old you are but I imagine you have some type of work history you can add.
