Assignment 2: Expatriates
Due Week 4 and worth 200 points

Imagine you are an HR manager, and you have been challenged with the task of reducing expatriate turnover. Think of one or two (1-2) strategies to accomplish this task, and write a one (1) page memo to your boss summarizing your ideas. Persuade him that this is the direction to go.

  1. Write a one to two (1 to 2) page memo in which you:
  2. Develop two (2) strategies that will help your company reduce expatriate turnover.
  3. Summarize both ideas in memo format to present to your boss.
  4. Create compelling arguments in favor of your solution to persuade your boss.
  5. Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:
    1. Typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.
    2. Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, your name, your professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not included in the required page length.
    3. Use the APA format to reference your work, including in-text references when necessary. See the APA Guide located in the Student Center tab.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Analyze international business strategy to identify human resource requirements and formulate supporting HRM plans that can improve productivity and contribute to the firm’s competitiveness.
  • Propose staffing alternatives for foreign operations and address the considerations for the use of expatriates versus localization or third-country nationals.

To get us started on writing essay 1, I would like to get us to:

  1. Write a working thesis
  2. Narrow down which sources you want to include in our essay
  3. Practice writing an academic summary

This thesis proposal should include all three parts to receive full credit.

Thesis Proposal

Step 1: Review How to Write a Working Thesis

First, for Essay 1, you are going to be answering either of the following prompts:

  • Describe how you have worked to face and overcome an educational barrier in your life and why it is important to stick with your educational goals. (This is piggybacking on the paragraph you just wrote last week.)
  • Describe one educational barrier that effects student success and how one might overcome that barrier (either from a student or instructor perspective).

A clear, well-written thesis will answer the prompt, so let’s get started on how to write a strong thesis.

A thesis is your main insight or idea about a text or topic, and the main proposition that your essay demonstrates. It should be true but arguable (not obviously or patently true, but one alternative among several), be limited enough in scope to be argued in a short composition and with available evidence, and get to the heart of the text or topic being analyzed (not be peripheral). It should be stated early in some form and at some point recast sharply (not just be implied), and it should govern the whole essay (not disappear in places).

A claim that is not debatable does not qualify as a thesis—for example:

  • “Shakespeare’s Hamlet is a play about a young man who seeks revenge”.
  • That doesn’t say anything-it’s basically just a summary and is hardly debatable.

Here is an example of a stronger, more debatable thesis:

  • “Hamlet experiences internal conflict because he is in love with his mother”.
  • This is arguable, controversial even. The rest of a paper with this argument as its thesis will be an attempt to show, using specific examples from the text and evidence from scholars, (1) how Hamlet is in love with his mother, (2) why he’s in love with her, and (3) what implications there are for reading the play in this manner.

Note that a thesis, just like the Point in your paragraph is an opinion/claim. The difference is that the thesis is the claim of the whole essay while a Point is the claim of that specific paragraph. Often the Points are reasons/sub-claims for the big thesis.

I like to think about the thesis in terms of a limited subject (what you are talking about) and an attitude (what you have to say or argue about the topic.) For our purposes for Essay 1, the limited subject is the education barrier and the attitude is how to overcome it.

Once you have completed all three steps, submit a document or text submission which clearly outlines all three steps.
