Career success is a major field in the study of human resource management. Also career success is
deeply concerned about employees and organizations, especially in organizations with no borders
which provide many careers today. Employees can no longer be relied just on objective measures
such as wages, job titles, authority and so on for indexes to measure career success. Subjective career
success is more and more important for employees. This article attempts to make a summary
on subjective career success definition using empirical research and putting forward the direction
of future research.
