In college, I had a position with UPS where I would Doc Audit international exports before they left the United States. This is done so that invoices can be sent-ahead for fast customs clearance.

This is one of the few positions where you get to OPEN packages.

OMG .. The things I found in some of the packages probably rival what TSAers find in checked luggage.
