Going International, New Zealand Style from Sarah Herrmann ’09

“Um, sorry, you’re moving … WHERE?” This was the general reaction to the news that, yes, I was moving. Moving to the other side of the world, to a new hemisphere – a place where steering wheels are on the right, winter is summer and the national symbol is the most outlandish creature I’ve ever witnessed walk this earth (please just Google a video of a kiwi bird).

On March 28th Take A Trip Around The World With Us!

CNN Travel recently posted International business etiquette 101; the article opened with three examples: In Spain, a business dinner will last well into the early morning hours — many restaurants don’t even open until 9 p.m. and don’t get busy until 10 or 11 p.m. Australians aren’t impressed by a title or status — they expect your work to speak for itself. The Japanese aren’t afraid to ask how much money you earn or how large your home is. And these are only three out of thousands of different customs, business protocols and social mores throughout the world! It is […]

PiAf Fellows work in service-oriented positions in many different fields, including humanitarian aid, public health, conservation, and education. The more I checked in to this fellowship to write about it the more I wanted to apply. I ran into this inspiring blog, Beyond the Gate, featuring first-person perspectives from recent alums […]
