Park, Yongho
International Journal of Training and Development, v14 n1 p1-15 Mar 2010
Subjective career success has recently been discussed widely in the academic field of career development. The purpose of this study was to investigate the predictors of subjective career success. It examined the effects of the calling work orientation, the individual's career-enhancing strategy and the organizational learning climate on the subjective career success of 253 employees in a company in the Korean financial sector. The results identified three significant predictors of subjective career success: creating opportunity, calling work orientation and continuous learning. Among the significant predictors, creating opportunity--part of the individual's career-enhancing strategy--proved to be the best predictor of subjective career success. Conclusions were drawn and implications and limitations discussed.
