dc.description.abstractPrevious studies on social ties have shown that the benefits of one’s social ties vary according to the strength of the ties; therefore, this research seeks to investigate the relationship between the strength of social ties and career success, moderated by the level of authority of the co-workers whom one is linked to. With Hollywood as the research setting, a sample group of 100 artistes is selected. Complementary to previous research, stronger ties with the higher authority level and weaker ties with the lower authority level, both positively related to career success, are hypothesized. The results, however, indicate that stronger ties play a more important role in achieving career success in both authority levels. With these results, the practical implications of these findings, limitations and directions for future research are then discussed.en_US
