The Career Futures Inventory (CFI, Rottingaus, Day & Borgen, 2005) is a measure of career adaptability, career optimism, and knowledge of the job market. The goals of the present study were (a) to construct a German version of the CFI, (b) to validate the German version with working adults, and (c) to concider the construct of career success and personality traits. Analyses of two samples (N1 = 153; N2 = 110) revealed a 3-factorial structure of the German version. Furthermore, convergent and discriminant validity were demonstrated by expected correlations or non-correlations of all CFI factors with several indicators of both objective (e. g., salary and promotions) and subjective (e. g., job satisfaction, career satisfaction, external marketability, comparison judgement) career success, and personality traits (i. e., Big Five) in both samples. Finally, incremental validity was shown by demonstrating that knowledge of the job market explained variance of salary beyond other relevant career variables and personality. For career satisfaction, the same pattern was found for career optimism. The present study validates the German-speaking version of the CFI with two working samples and offers opportunities for the application of the CFI in German-speaking countries and employees.
