During the years of transformation after 1989 the Czech Republic began to be incorporated into the structures of international institutions and became opened to the influences of the processes of globalization. In this context international labour migration occurred as a new possibility in career of Czech citizens. From some perspectives the migration is seen as a mean of de-standardization of career. This article analyzes the relation of international workforce mobility and de-standardization of career. Based on qualitative in-depth interviews with current migrants, the article shows how international migration influences individual phases (leaving parental home, completing education, entering labour market, marriage and parenthood) of the process of transition to adulthood.
