This paper is the first to explore predictors’ keys of career adaptability and subjective career success in the Saudi context. Many employees, especially women, are facing several challenges in their work, and career adaptability is a way to overcome these difficulties to reach the career success. This research investigated the mediating role of career adaptability (CA) in the relation between both psychological capital (PsCap) and perceived organizational support (POS), as predictors of CA, and subjective career success (SCS). To test our hypotheses, we collected survey data from academic staff in Saudi universities in Riyadh. The results revealed a significant relation between both (PsyCap) and POS on CA. This relation also influenced the SCS through a partial mediation of CA.
