dc.description.abstract Objectives This study aims to shed light into how international experience is perceived by Finnish SMEs and how it affects the attractiveness of prospective employees. Summary The literature review showed that international experience is proven to have several positive effects on the skillset of an individual. It also showed that the the ability to operate in the international market is becoming increasingly important to companies in the domestic market. The primary research consists of semi-structured interviews with SME representatives. The findings indicated that although the companies found benefit in international experience, it was not considered a factor in the selection process. Conclusions Recognition of the benefits of international experience might not be enough to improve employability. en
