Fitting in socially and getting a foot in the door of employers – it’s rarely easy, especially when you’re in a new country. We get it.
For international students as well as outbound domestic students, in the space of a plane ride you can go from being a competent adult with a well-developed social and professional network to someone whose ability is limited by your language skills and lack of local connections. This can have a corrosive effect on your confidence.
We know first-hand what it’s like to live and work internationally where you don’t speak the language and the culture is very different.
That’s why we hand-select topics in Project Global Citizen that are highly relevant and practical to your personal situation.
It’s unreasonable to expect you can settle into your new host country and get a foot in the door of employers without specialist intercultural advice.
To help you get there, we share our practical cultural frameworks to help you “make sense” of what you don’t yet know.
You’ll then co-design practical strategies to overcome these cultural differences so that you can survive and thrive in your new host country.
