May I see what your documentation currently looks like?

This is the most important question because:

1. Interviewer is more interested in the documentation they have
than it what you bring to interview.

2. Nobody else interviewing for the job will ask for it.

3. The documentation will not be brought to the interview, so one of the
interviewers will have to go get it (SOMEBODY WANTS TO SEE IT!).

When you get the documentation, your should have a definite response.
