|dc.description.abstract||Career success has always been focus for organizations and individuals. Research has shown that if individuals want to succeed in their career, they need to develop social networks so that they can obtain more resources, information, and opportunities. Especially, individuals need to find a powerful career ally in the social network for providing career sponsorship, such as professional guidance, challenging tasks and gaining exposure； However, researches have focused on social network and career sponsorship. They have not explored how can other personally initiated active career behaviors contribute to career sponsorship and career success. Therefore, the major purpose of this study is using career self-management as a moderator and exploring a moderated mediation model among career self-management, social networking, career sponsorship and career success.
The results of the study indicated that: 1. Career sponsorship has mediating effect on the relationship between the strength of social networks and career success. 2. Career self-management has a positively moderating effect on the relationship between career sponsorship and career success. 3. When the degree of career self-management is higher, the strength of the social network connection has more positive effect on career success through the mediator of career sponsorship.
In conclusion, individuals must engage in career self-management so that career sponsorship and career self-management can complement each other. Through career self-management, the staffs can continuously interact with their career allies to get career sponsorship in the social network and then the helps of the career allies can be fully translated into personal career success.
