Introduction: Successful entrepreneurship before being an economic activity is type of art. Success has a multi-dimensional complex and unsustainable structure that includes financial and nonfinancial results. The job success of entrepreneurs is influenced by individual factors such as the characteristics of entrepreneurs such as risk-taking, the need and desire for progress, foresight, tolerance of ambiguity and independence; environmental factors such as economic, social, cultural, political and technical and structural factors such as elements, factors and physical conditions, culture and organizational resources. Accordingly, this study aimed to investigate the factors determining the success of entrepreneurial clients in agricultural employment creation plans of the Imam Khomeini Relief Committee in Golestan Province.
Method: The present study was carried out using a quantitative method (survey) and a questionnaire among 350 entrepreneurial clients in agricultural employment plans of the Imam Khomeini Relief Committee in Golestan province by multi-stage random sampling. The face validity of the questionnaire was confirmed by a panel of experts and the pre-test phase was conducted in the same region as the statistical society with 30 questionnaires. Using the obtained data and using the Cronbach’s alpha coefficient, the reliability of the questionnaire for personal-motivational factors, skill, support and infrastructure, was 0/894.
Findings: Prioritization of the determinants of the success of entrepreneurial clients in agricultural employment plans showed that among the components of personality- motivational factors, the interest in success in work; among the components of the proficiency factors, having experience in relevant work; among supportive factors, conducting training courses and among infrastructural factors, having production facilities such as land and water, are ranked first. The results of the F and T tests showed that there is a significant difference between the participants’ viewpoints about determinants of job success in term of educational level, income, the satisfaction level of employment creation plan, the market demand amount for productions and having technical and vocational certificate related to enterprise. The Friedman test showed that the personality-motivational factor had the highest importance and infrastructural factor had the lowest importance in job success of entrepreneurial clients.
Discussion: The results showed that the personality and motivational components have the most and the infrastructural components have the least role in the job success of the entrepreneurial clients which means clients rely more on their ability and internal characteristics on their career paths.
