Accepting a new job often involves considering many factors. We weigh our personal values and needs, to those of various organizations. Once this decision has been made and a new job is started we must then adjust our behaviors to fit those of our organization. When accepting a position in a foreign country this process becomes much more involved. Not only do we have to make the normal adjustments to a new work environment, but we must also adapt to a new culture. This paper aims to examine the country of Spain, in anticipation of starting a job there in three months time. We will investigate the history of the country in hopes of not only learning about their culture, but also how that culture was formed. We will examine various aspects of that culture; such as the language, attitudes, beliefs, and the norms of the society.
