Abstract Opening a factory overseas requires a large amount of capitals and technical experiences, and the number of native cadres expatriated overseas is also considerable. The relationships between Overseas Adaption and Job Satisfaction of expatriates are worth research and exploration. This study, therefore, aims to discuss the effects of Overseas Adaption on Job Satisfaction of expatriates in textile industry. The questionnaires for expatriates of Far Eastern New Century are distributed and collected through mails. With convenience sampling, a total of 400 copies are distributed and 263 valid ones are retrieved, with the retrieval rate of 66%. Based on the statistical analyses with SPSS, the sample data are further proceeded with factor analysis, reliability analysis, regression analysis, and analysis of variance. The research findings show the significantly positive correlations between (1) Overseas Adaption and Needs for Survival, (2) Overseas Adaption and Needs for Relatedness, and (3) Overseas Adaption and Needs for Growth; and (4) the correlations between Overseas Adaption and Job Satisfaction show remarkable differences in personal attributes.
