This chapter explores the diverse perspectives on global careers and their implications for international human resource development. The chapter starts by discussing what is meant by global careers and how careers have changed within the global economy and the implications of globalisation and traditional versus contemporary career concepts such as boundaryless and protean careers are examined. The chapter examines how organisations and careerists might manage the challenges and opportunities around global work experiences. Finally, the chapter discusses the opportunities for further research on global careers within the field of IHRD, especially in the areas of systematic categorisation that captures the diversity of global work experiences and examinations of the role of context and time in global careers.
