Working abroad can be opportunity or scary experience…

Today we live in a rapidly changing world. In developed companies, it is very common to work abroad. Working abroad can be an exciting opportunity or can also be a scary experience. There are both advantages and disadvantages.

Spending your life in a foreign country has a lot of advantages. The main advantage is that you will learn about a different culture and language. For example, when you meet new people and make new friends from different cultures this will be exciting. Second, working abroad you can gain a new perspective. Moreover, this will bring you one step ahead of your other colleagues. Another advantage is self-confidence and you will become more independent. Because of loneliness, you are alone and you have to learn and do things on your own.

On the other hand, there are also some disadvantages. Working in a foreign country means being away from your family. Sometimes you will feel homesick. In addition, culture shock and adaptation to live in the new city can be disadvantage as well.  For example, in my culture homosexuals are not accepted but in San Francisco they are common. Foreigners are not easily agreeable in these kind of things.

To sum up, working abroad would be a good experience and the best chance to understand how the world thinks. It all depends on your own personality and attitude. If you really want to make a change in your life, this is the time to start something new. Are you ready?
