Different people has different definition to success. Success can be ranged from small matter like accomplish a certain tough task tovery big matter like being the CEO of a company etc. It solely based on individual to define whether he himself is successful or not. ANyway, congratulations to your friend.

The definition of successful is different to every people, some think that as long as he get the higher position in a company, then he is success, some think that as long as he get much money, then he is success. I guess to your friend, the salary he get is much more important than whether he likes the job, so in another mean he is so called successful.

Success is defined in terms of one's effort and fulfillment on his work in a positive way. In short he should have reached the level of contentment along with satisfaction without stepping other's rights or happiness.
