In the paper, we study a range of problems connected with the relations between the contemporary international migration flows from Poland and the polish labour market. In the centre of our interest are the consequences of the massive labour force outflow. We take into consideration different types of migration strategies chosen by those who move. The aim of the paper is to present various direct and indirect consequences of the international mobility of Poles, depending on the duration of migration and its character. The typology used by the authors distinguishes four types of migration: seasonal or circulation, 'intentional unpredictability', of long-term and settlement. We show that the choice of migration strategy results in specific labour market consequences. These consequences are further enhanced by selectivity patterns of Poles towards particular strategies. The main conclusion is that the influence of post-accession emigration on the polish labour market is ambiguous and diverse.
