Career Decision Making of Global Careerists

Abstract : The present study aims at increasing our understanding of (1) the elements that global careerists value most in their employment relationship, (2) the factors affecting their decisions to change employers or reject external job offers, and (3) the factors which are important to global careerists when considering their future career. By adopting a social exchange theoretical perspective, the results show that global careerists base their career-move decisions on two categories of returns: first on motivational intangible and non-financial rewards, and second on financial rewards which appear secondary factors in their decision. The study identifies five drivers and four counter-forces impacting the boundaryless nature of a global career.
