Abstract: When planning a career on the international labor market, one should take into account not only professional skills and excellent knowledge of foreign languages but also openness to new experiences. Openness is in fact a tendency to seek and evaluate – in a positive context – life experiences, tolerance towards novelties and rapidly changing working conditions, and cognitive curiosity (cf. A. Bańka, 2005). The research conducted among graduates of pedagogical studies at the Marie Curie Skłodowska University sought to determine the openness of young teachers to new experiences related to their pursuit of professional career in different social environments, cultural and organizational.
