Abstract (Summary)

This study tested the theory of a relationship between self-esteem and extrinsic career success, using data taken from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY79ch). Answers were sought as to whether a relationship exists between self-esteem and extrinsic career success, and whether self-esteem in combination with job satisfaction also exhibited a relationship with extrinsic career success. Simple regressions were run for single variable tests, and multiple regressions for multivariate tests. Self-esteem in simple regressions did reliably impact extrinsic career success, whereas job satisfaction as a coefficient failed to do so. Education was found instead to be far more impactful. Additional research to identify further predictors of this success from similar longitudinal data would be advantageous for predicting career path.
