Many scholars consider that it has significant relation with expatriates’ psycological contract. By reviewing expatriate career management related literature (Career Theory and Psycological Contract related researches) and analyzing through three dimensions (individual, organizational and global envionment), this research offers a theoretical framework with 4 propositions for future research on expatriate career path at repatriation.
