Formatted Abstract/Summary This study tested the individual differences of professional Chinese immigrants' (PCIs) attitudes toward acculturation strategies, and explored the effects of these strategies on job satisfaction. Based on Berry’s seminal work on the acculturation process, the study recruited 214 PCIs in the Australian workplace to complete the questionnaires. Results of cluster analysis revealed that the PCIs have a predominant preference to maintain their home culture, with most of them adopting Separation strategy and Integration strategy. Furthermore, results supported the relationship between acculturation strategies and job satisfaction: PCIs adopted the Assimilation strategy have the highest level of job satisfaction and Separation as the lowest. The paper also presents directions for future research.
