Have you worked overseas? Would you be interested in participating in a research project :-)

Hi All!!

I am an Honours student in the School of Business at the University of Ballarat. I am conducting research on how young Australians working overseas manage social and cultural adjustment issues in a foreign country.

Currently I am looking for participants to be interviewed about their experiences working overseas to assist in identifying ways in which individuals can overcome challenges caused by social and cultural differences.

My research is focusing on second generation Australians aged 18-35 who have worked in China, Japan, the UK, or other European countries. Participation is entirely voluntary and telephone interviews are available for individuals working abroad.

It would take approximately one hour, via the telephone or face to face and can be broken into smaller sections if you wish. This study is being conducted to gain some insight into your perceptions on cross cultural adjustment and to explore your opinions and experience of working abroad.

If you would like to be involved or know anyone that may be able to assist, please send me a message!

I would love to hear from you
