The impact of expatriates' career characteristics on career and job satisfaction, and intention to leave: an objective and subjective fit approach
This empirical study combines literature on career with literature relevant to international mobility in order to investigate individual career characteristics as antecedents of career satisfaction, job satisfaction and intention to leave. Our hypotheses, based on both an objective and subjective fit approach, were tested on data from 303 expatriates, including assigned and self-initiated expatriates. As anticipated, careerist orientation and career fit explain job satisfaction, career satisfaction and intention to leave. Results are more mixed for protean career attitude and boundaryless career attitude. Implications for academic research and business practice are discussed.
