Abstract

Using a true experimental design in a field setting, the influence of a self-assessment realistic job preview (RJP) was examined in the context of expatriate candidates' decision-making process in a multinational company. Compared to the control group, participants receiving the RJP reported greater self-efficacy for success on a global assignment and also reported a higher perceived ability to make an informed decision as to whether to accept a global assignment. Interest in a future global assignment was not affected by the self-assessment.
