The diversity of the Australian workforce has increased over the last 25 years,
particularly with the increase in the number of migrants from South-east Asia. Despite
the knowledge, skill and expertise that many of these immigrants possess prior to
migrating, a high proportion of immigrants experience significant difficulties obtaining
employment commensurate with their abilities. This paper is an exploratory study of the
preferences of managers, recruitment specialists and migrants regarding recruitment and
selection practices in selected Australian cities. Surprisingly, the findings revealed
similarities between the three groups (managers, migrants and recruitment consultants).
Thus, this study adds to the debate about the impact of cross-cultural expectations in
recruitment and selection in Australian organisations.
