Inside an Irish Internship

Global Experiences | July.19.2016

In June when I arrived in Dublin and started my internship abroad, I started to slowly learn the differences between Irish and American work culture. A typical work day starts between 9-10 for everyone in the office I work in. However the atmosphere is more laid back so no one is really watching the clock for when anyone comes in. Everyone ends their work days at 5:30, unless there’s a Euro game going on, then the office clears out much earlier.
