dc.description.abstract Exploratory research was undertaken to explore the factors that explain the intentions of South African information technology workers to seek foreign work experience. A wide ranging literature survey covering the topics of expatriate assignments, migration, career, organisational theory and statistics yielded a comprehensive set of constructs comprising personal and job demographics, the South African environment, globalisation, career, organisation, knowledge management, foreign country allure, personality, and personal reasons. A field survey of a stratified sample of South African information technology workers resident in South Africa and overseas was undertaken. The data yielded meaningful analysis and interpretation with two of eight propositions being supported. These propositions were that personality and the South African socio-economic and political environment are good predictors of intentions to seek work overseas. A profile of workers was compiled based on the clusters and discriminating factors emerging from the analysis. The research provides a meaningful platform for further research. en
