The aim of this study is to explore the effect of job performance on the success of teachers in the Malaysian school context. In this study, two dimensions of job performance were examined, such as mission performance and organisational citizenship behaviour (OCB). This examination led to more knowledge by accepting the various interpretations of job performance assessments in the form of self and management ratings for the career progress of teachers. The data was collected from 390 respondents via mail surveys. The results suggested that the selfrating of job success was the only factor correlated with the inherent career achievement of teachers. There were no major connections between OCB self-ratings on either the extrinsic career achievement of teachers or the intrinsic career success of teachers. This study found that the OCB management ranking was the key factor correlated with the intrinsic career performance of teachers. There were no notable relations between job performance management scores on the extrinsic career success of teachers and the intrinsic career success of teachers. This investigation has given some new information that can be guided to the Ministry of Education (MOE) in order to improve the level of teacher performance and OCB, especially in the Malaysian school climate.
