Working abroad some advice l.jpg

Working Abroad: Some Advice

  • Do your homework before you go, so you know as much as possible beforehand.

  • Confirm what you think you know by asking more questions than making statements.

  • Be open minded and respectful of other cultural practices—people do things differently—our approach isn’t always better.

  • Genuinely care about the people you meet and their situations. Be empathetic to those you meet—understand that systemic or structural factors can be constraining them. Be collaborative in your approach as opposed to “I’m here to solve your problems.”

  • Faithfully keep a diary/journal along with photos; it’s amazing how quickly you can forget the details.

  • Set a high standard for yourself—deliver more than you promise.

  • Be willing to go to seemingly hopeless places. You may be pleasantly surprised by the attitude of the people you meet.
