Research on career success has received significant attention as it has proven to have a positive impact for driving employee sense of belonging and helps organizations design effective career systems.The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between self efficacy, locus of control and perceived organizational support with career success and to determine which of these three influenced career success the most. 119 Human Resource Department employees in lntel Malaysia completed the survey for this study regarding their self efficacy, locus of control, perceived organizational support and career success. The study utilized the reliability analysis, descriptive statistics and multiple regression analysis to examine the relationships between self efficacy, locus of control and perceived organizational support with career success and to determine which of these three influenced career success the most. The results showed that self efficacy, locus of control and perceived organizational support were all positively related to career success and perceived organizational support was found to influence career success the most. Multiple regression results revealed that 28% of the variance of career success is explained by self efficacy, locus of control and perceived organizational support. The findings suggest that the organization should consider designing and enhancing several career systems support strategies to help employees achieve career success.
