Understanding of cultures

Only if you are fully willing to learn and understand different cultures you should think of moving away from your comfort zone. It is already difficult enough to adjust to all the differences a new country introduces you to (outside of Europe). Your superiors have a different mind set, the numbers you need to achieve and look at are different. Payroll is not so important but stealing and breakage is in loads of countries outside Europe an issue.

Read as much as you can about the culture of the country and colleagues you will have. Keep your European spirit always up and adjust it to the different cultures as you interact with them. Only if you keep an open mind you will see the light at the end of the tunnel and your journey to it will be amazing. I know it is not easy but enhances your live a lot.

Until next time.
