Abstract:
Despite misgivings about the effect of relocation on the family, companies are relocating a record number of employees. Particularly effected by these transfers is the significant other in the relationship--the trailing spouse. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect relocation has on the career of the trailing spouse. Participants of this study were women over the age of 18 who were currently married and had relocated because of their husband's career. To assess the effect, the Career Development Questionnaire was developed and administered. Results of this study showed there was a significant difference in attitude toward relocation between the homemaker and those who chose careers outside the home. The homemakers stated that relocating had no effect on their careers. Due to relocation, the career group agreed they had to: change occupations, change career goals, and take lower positions or salaries in order to find work.
