Working in a different culture 2

Suppose the company you work for asks you to relocate to another country.  Write a brief (one-page) report about what you need to know before you make the decision.  Also prepare a brief presentation (one to three minutes) about your findings. 

Address the following issues:

  • Explain the basics of the country’s culture (high/low-context, language, nonverbal communication, beliefs, values, expectations).
  • What are the advantages or disadvantages of moving to this country? 
  • Suppose you have a child or plan to have a child in the near future.   Would you want to raise children in this country?  Why or why not?
  • What unique opportunities exist for you if you move to this country?
  • What websites did you find the most helpful when searching for this information?
