The Careerist

The Careerist is the consummate brown-nosing backstabber. Most remain stuck in a cubicle farm, performing
the same mundane tasks day after day, while the ruthless few climb upwards in the corporate hierarchy.
Potentially, The Careerist could also run their own company, fighting for survival against corporate giants.
In a world where nothing is off limits when it comes to advancing one’s career, success necessitates
being willing to do whatever it takes.
