Complex interrelations between structural components of professional self-concept and career success ratings in employees of different organizations (total of 125 subjects aged 20-55) are studied. Peculiarities of experiencing career success by employees that depend on whether an employee assesses his/her own career or colleagues’ career are identified. It is concluded that current success models used by employees as criteria of success become more complex due to both horizontal and vertical career success standards.

Keywords: experiencing success, career, career orientations, vertical career, horizontal career, professional self-concept, professional identity

 

Funding
The study was supported by the Russian Foundation for Humanities, project 12-06-00731 “Experiencing social problems in representatives of various social groups of the modern Russian society”.
