Despite of the importance of career optimism construct that may have positive consequences on the relation between employees and organization, there are not much studies on this subject. The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of person- job fit, and person-organization fit, on career optimism. In addition, the mediating role of career optimism in relation between these two constructs has been examined. The population of this study consisted of employees of four top ranking Iranian universities and data was collected using questionnaires. The findings show that both the person-job fit and the person-organization fit have positive impact on career optimism. But, the person-job fit is stronger predictor of career optimism than person-organization fit. Results also indicate a strong combine effect of these two types of fit on career optimism. Furthermore, the findings suggest that, the higher the person-job fit the more expecting the person- organization fit; therefore, we may argue that career optimism can facilitate the relationship between these two variables.
