Careerism

Other Names:
Opportunism
Nature:

According to Bratton and Kacmar's article, The Dark Side of Impression Management, extreme careerism is the propensity to pursue career advancement, power, and prestige through any positive or negative non-performance based activity that is deemed necessary. These "non-performance" based activities are activities in which an employee can easily manipulate the people whom he/she is trying to impress. Extreme careerism has become increasingly common in the business and organisational world in the 1990s and 2000s.
