Besides performance, career success should also be supported by two other keys. The first one is called as image, which are researches to take for about 30% of the whole part. The meaning of image here is no other else but your own personal brand which can also be explained as the way people see you at work. Other than this, there last key is exposure which takes the biggest part among all keys. If you are not really familiar with this term, it is related to some questions like the question about whether or not there are people who know about you and, of course, what you do at work.
