The term ‘career’ has many definitions. Gati et al. (2010) define it as a series of related adventures and experiences, some of which may not be associated with employment. Fouad, Cotter and Kantamneni (2009), on the other hand, refer to a career as an on-going developmental process involving reproduction and the transformation of structures. According to Vondracek, Lerner and Schulenberg (2019), the primary source of motivation in adults’ lives is based on the goal of career success. While success is subjective, it may be viewed in two perspectives: subjective success and objective success. Biemann and Braakmann (2013) refer to objective career success as one that focuses on specific aspects of an individual’s career, such as salary and promotion. The level of objective success if measures in different scales following the expectations of peers, families, and society. On the other hand, subjective career success focuses on indistinct variables such as career satisfaction leading to self-fulfillment. This study aligns with both definitions of career success as it strives to actualize the meaning of subjective success, as reflected in adults’ lives.
