Posted in:

International Business Etiquette Don'ts

Relocating for work? Make sure to ask your employer these six questions first.

These quintessentially American gaffes won't win you fans abroad:

· In Rome, scheduling a client lunch at the Olive Garden.

· In Jordan, suggesting a burka-free casual Friday.

· In Berlin, calling Gerta in accounting "a real Nazi about time sheets."

· In Toronto, asking a colleague if she knows your cousin Brenda, from Ottawa.

· In Tel Aviv, complaining about how your cubemate takes off for all the Jewish holidays.
