We are three students of a Zurich University for applied science. One of us is living abroad in Singapore as an expat, which brought us to our research paper to investigate the implication of expat assignments to the personal and career growth – focusing on Swiss citizens living abroad. On one hand, we conducted interviews with global firms' HR department to understand their needs. On the other hand we gather the input of people, which were or are living abroad as an expat, how they feel the assignment did (or did not) endorse their career and personal growth and what the key elements of success were. Additionally, we also consider employees, which were not yet working abroad, however, are interested in a potential expat assignment going forward. To achieve this aim we prepared a Protected content online survey.
It would be highly appreciated if you could help us distributing this message to all your friends and persons, which you know are expats (focusing on Swiss members). We of course, if being of interest, will share the outcome and conclusion of the research project once completed in April. Please be assured that your information and feedback is treated confidentially. Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail ( Protected content ). Best regards,
