One thing every employee reporting to an overseas assignment experiences, at least for the first few weeks, is culture shock. Discuss any personal experience you have with culture shock and how you handled it. Comment on what you might have done differently if you had been given that opportunity. Culture shock is not unique to overseas assignments. You can experience culture shock when traveling throughout the United States into regions with different customs, accents, language, and other factors. For example, some cultures do not shake hands.
