Czynniki rozwoju zawodowego polskich emigrantów - adaptacja na rynku pracy w Wielkiej Brytanii
Factors of Professional Development of Polish Emigrants. Adaptation on Labour Market in Great Britain
Newly opened boarders inside the United Europe have created new professional and economic opportunities for Polish and other European citizens. In such circumstances, as Neto and Barros (2007, p.215) argue, "the study of subjective satisfaction is of substantial applied importance". The study showed that a significant proportion of Polish people surveyed were satisfied with their careers and found them appropriate to their level of qualifications. The aim of the study was to explore the strategies of emigrants used to gain satisfaction from their professional development and to find a subjectively perceived 'proper job'. According to the results presented, those who were satisfied were more likely to have come to the UK specifically focusing on developing their careers and experience, rather than limiting their aspirations to finding work that pays better than work in Poland. Through gaining an insight into successful career development strategies but also potential barriers and difficulties faced by Polish economic migrants, the PPC Careers Service will propose a comprehensive programme of career development support based on the presented findings and closely linked to real needs in this area.
