The increasing globalization of business activities forces companies to recruit highly skilled employees all over the world. In order to attract these talents, employers have to differentiate themselves through a unique employer brand, appealing to diverse target audiences. However, in the absence of research on international students’ preferences for employer characteristics, it is difficult for multinational companies to decide on a feasible degree of employer brand standardization. Lena Christiaans investigates the impact of between-country differences, e.g. differences in national culture or economic wealth, on students’ preferences in relation to the effects of within-country differences in individuals’ characteristics. Combined with a segmentation of the European graduate market, the results provide readers with insight into the development of employer value propositions for business and engineering target groups.
