So, I recently graduated from college and managed to get an offer from a company in Guangzhou, China. I've lived in the United States for my entire
life, and have only left a couple of times to visit a friend in Brazil (once for 2 weeks, and once for a month.) I had a blast both times I went, but
those were vacations. If I go to China, I will be working 6 days a week with no vacation time. My degree is in Global Business, and I plan to
eventually pursue a career in some type of international consulting, so a year of work experience in China could be very beneficial to my future
goals. I'm wondering, though -- are there any Americans on here who have had any experience in China, preferably Guangzhou? If so, how was the
"culture shock"? What were the best/worst things about the transition from the US to China? I'd greatly appreciate any input.
