Free cultural event puts a spotlight on life in the US and Europe
Always wanted to know about how to get your life and career started in the US or in Europe? Or wanted to learn about differences in U.S. vs European culture? Register now for a special free cultural evening, taught by international speakers with experience in life on both sides of "the big pond"!
Eton Institute aims to contribute in helping internationals getting started in Vienna. Besides it has always been one of the institute’s major concerns to display Vienna’s international community and to introduce it to the general public. As part of a continuing social event series Eton Institutes’ Cultural Evenings provide a vivid platform of exchange. These efforts have been embraced with great interest and have led to the creation of the young and urban "Eton Institute Community".
This time there will be the great opportunity to listen and talk to young professionals who’ve been living and working both in the States and in Europe successfully. You can learn about differences in: business etiquette, studying abroad, work/visa related issues and much more! Plus you will get a brief look at what the 4th of July is all about. Get to know these young professionals and their stories.
The evening will be hosted by Eton Institute and the American star journalist Samantha Mitchell.
Get an early start on your 4th of July celebrations and taste some great American food.
Hope to see you there!
