Abstract [en]

While differences have been found between sent-out expatriates and those self-initiated little is known about differences between different types of global careerists. The purposeof this paper is to compare two types of global careerists and their subjective experiences; repeat expatriates sent out several times by the same company and international itinerants who work in several countries for different companies. Three relevant dimensions are identified; country and culture, organization and career, and other communities and networks. The career paths of twenty Swedish global careerists and how they narrate their careers are analyzed and the two types of global careerists are compared. Results show that the repeat expatriates and international itinerants differ in their subjective experiences of global careers and how they narrate them. This research contributes to our understanding of subjective experiences of different types of global careers and integrates a range of issues that are important to global careerists.
