The main problem in this paper is to identify the factors that are connected with employee career satisfaction and salary, showing his productivity and, accordingly, the usefulness for the economy. The research question is how the cognitive and non-cognitive skills of the working population are related to their career success (salary and career satisfaction) in the control of educational and professional achievements. The sample consisted of employees of Russian enterprises. We used data from the Centre for secondary vocational education research At NRU HSE Institute of Education (Lifelong learning group). The correlation is evaluated using six linear multiple regression models, where the main independent variables were adult skills: literacy skill, numeracy skill, and non-cognitive skills («Big five»). The results indicate a statistically significant positive correlation between career success, in particular the employee's salary level and the indicator of extroversion. There was also a statistically significant negative correlation between the level of salary and score on numeracy skill.
