The existing literature proposes a large number of potential predictors of career success, which makes it difficult to measure such facilitative factors in an economic way. To address this challenge, Hirschi, Nagy, Baumeler, Johnston, and Spurk (2018) developed and evaluated the Career Resources Questionnaire (CRQ). The CRQ measures 13 factors, represented in four higher-level dimensions: Knowledge and Skills, Motivation, Environment, and Activities. In this study, we aimed to validate the German version of the CRQ among 1,666 employees and students. The results support the reliability and factor structure and support concurrent and criterion validity regarding similar measures and different indicators of objective and subjective career success. Moreover, relative-weight analyses show that the relationships between various factors and various types of career success differ. We conclude that the German-language CRQ provides an economic, reliable, and efficient tool for assessing key predictors of career success.
