International assignments and their positive/negative effects on the employee and the organization have largely been covered by literature. At the same time, potential employees are attracted to become members of multinational organizations due to the implicit or explicit statement that international assignments are an option. But is it always the case? The present study focuses on one developing country and member of the EU (Romania) and aims at determining if Romanian employees are realistically eligible for international assignments in a foreseeable future from an organizational point of view (type of industry, level within the organization, type of organizational policy). We tested three hypotheses that will be the basis for further study.
