How do you felt when you was Hired overseas as office staffs

Hello everyone.

How do you felt when you were directly hired overseas in a rural town? You never knew anyone from your country, local were hostile of you as the new office workers, and you have to endure their abusive work practices that pushed you to work on different jobs?

I have never found a place where locals were hostile.
Most people are friendly and welcoming if you approach them with a similar attitude.

I'm introvert, and I feel so timid when meeting new people. So. Working overseas was a challenge for me but it helped me a lot to socialize more and communicate more and more than before

It’s all about your personality and how u can get along with new places and new cultures, some are open and some are reserved , others like to socialize and some might need more effort. The key 🔑 is to understand the culture and how they perceive expat and once you do that ... you will be amazed how easy to integrate with the new place.

good manners,
politeness
& making effort of basic-knwoledge of the local-spoken-language,,,
are always gladly-welcome-things to right-step-in everywhere..

I have never experienced hostility from the locals, and I am a woman, with brown skin, a low age for my field, an Arabic name, an Israeli passport, and a funny accent.  Even the people of North Carolina were friendly to me.

People tend to treat you the way you treat them.
