Abstract [en]

Skilled migrants and related concepts such as integration and career outcomes have been andcontinue to be researched extensively in a variety of human resource and industrial relationsjournals. Using structured literature review, 148 papers on the subject were identified (publisheduntil March 2018). Analysing these papers, eight approached to study work experience of skilledmigrants were identified, including (1) Human Capital Theory, (2) Career Capital Theory, (3)Bourdieu’s Theory of Practice and Forms of Capital, (4) Intersectionality and Gender Approach,(5) Social Identity approach and Similarity Effect, (6) Sensemaking Theory, (7) Cultural IdentityTransition, (8) Career-centred Approach. Contribution and limitation of each approach isdiscussed. Overall, research on skilled migrants has proceeded without a clear theoreticalorientation, adequate consideration of organizational, contextual and individual factors, andappropriate attention to quantitative methods.
