Resumé

In this paper, we seek to look into the intention and action gap.
To do so, conceptually, we bring together career construction
and dual embeddedness theories to examine how refugees
reconstruct their careers after their arrivals in host countries.
Based on in-depth data from 11 recently arrived refugees in
Germany, we use comparative case study as a method to examine
and theorize the relationship between dual embeddedness and
refugee career reconstruction path. The results bring forth the
notion of job creation as well as two mechanisms – information
search and willingness to cope with uncertainty - through which
refugees reconstruct their career, each of which has different
implications for the degree of refugee career reconstruction.
By combining behavioral with social network theories, we
discuss the nature of job creation and job seeking, and offer
new theoretical insights into how entrepreneurs bridge transform
their intention into behavior. We conclude the paper by providing
practical recommendations for refugee integration.
