International Career Transitions: Making Global Connections Work
Dale Furbish and Nancy Arthur
Globalisation has created a “world village” and has resulted in important changes in work life (Amundson, 2005). Within the world village, it is increasingly common for people to reside in a country other than their native one in order to work or study. These international career experiences can enhance cross-cultural competencies, develop personal flexibility and adaptability, and broaden occupational experience; valuable competencies for thriving in the world village.
