    Post Importance of character

    Dear teachers

    Does the following sentence read well?

    This is a place where the character of a person plays an important role in his career.

    Thank you

    I'm not sure I like 'a place where' if you really mean 'a position in which.'

    Yes. I read "place" as meaning "organisation/company", which would then work for me.
