Reflections on Working Life in an Internship Abroad

Madeline | October.11.2016

In the past few weeks I have arrived in Dublin and started my internship abroad. I’m slowly learning 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 5:30pm, unless there’s an Euro game going on, then the office clears out much earlier.
