Abstract Local employees have different perceptions of the career opportunities they can derive from firms’ internationalization when compared to the senior managers who manage this process. We argue that perceptions of internationalization-related career advancement opportunities represent a perceived fit between employees and organizations. We examine this fit within a sample of 845 local employees from eleven Latin American countries. Our findings suggest that the degree of firm international...

In this paper, we explore how signal generation capabilities (SGCs) and signal management capabilities (SMCs) affect corporate reputation management strategies, with respect to modern technologies of the digital world. Expanding upon signaling theory, and the notion of informational asymmetries, we draw attention to the complementary roles of current IT in creating and managing signals of productive and qualitative efficiency that may be converted into corporate reputation. We introduce a new ty...
