Currently, I am working on a research project at the University of Mannheim, Germany. My goal is to better understand expatriation success and some certain influential factors and thus support corporate management of expatriates.
That’s where I need your help! In order to get statistically reliable and relevant results, I need as many participants with different backgrounds as possible - therefore I use all channels I can think of - forums like singaporeexpats.com aswell.
Please support research by filling in this questionnaire (it will only take 15 minutes and is completely anonymous): http://ww3.unipark.de/uc/Expatriates/Study/
Of course - if you are interested in the results of the study - I am going to update you after the analysis of the collected data. Just drop me a note (contact details are provided in the study aswell)!
Thank you so very much for your support!
Also, why would someone consider this forum to represent "successful" expat experience? Yes, a lot of the folks on this are/were expats. That doesn't mean everyone had a great time or whatever. What is success?PNGMK wrote:Susan,
You're probably a bit disappointed we haven't all lined up to take your survey. Let me explain. We see probably a dozen requests a year on this forum for similar things.... most of them are posted by ungrateful postgrad students or similar and result in tears of frustration due to the poorly thought out questions or badly formatted survey monkey pages.
Most of us gave up trying to help after the very poorly thought out last request a month of so back - I remember abandoning the survey half way through when the questions simply made it impossible for me to categorize myself (i.e. the questions were mutually exclusive and I fell into a non-category and died in an endless loop).
So - if you want our interest pony up with something. Maybe a used lottery ticket raffle draw, random gift, a chance at winning a date (for JR8) etc.... make it not so damn boring. Expats crave entertainment.
Sounds like a question for people who don't like evaluating what they're about to face if they will answer yes.Strong Eagle wrote:"I enjoy a challenge, no matter how difficult it is"? What kind of a question is that? It's a question from your typical profiling test.
