‘A rich collection of knowledge about diverse types, experiences, and issues of global careerists... an indispensable resource for global career researchers, educators, and practitioners.’

Margaret Shaffer, Michael F. Price Chair of International Business, University of Oklahoma

Exploring global career issues in-depth, this important collection works at the intersection of career management and international HRM. It uses a multitude of perspectives to explore global career drivers, experiences and outcomes for individuals, as well as career systems and management within organisations and societies. Both long-term and short-term careers are discussed and examined alongside the impact that they have on elements of family life, providing a useful guide for academic scholars, HR managers and professionals operating in global environments.
