The purpose of this study is to investigate the applicability of the job demands–resources (JD‐R) model to work engagement and career development based on the extended conceptual model proposed by Lee, Kwon, Kim, and Cho (2016). This study also aims to examine gender differences within this model. To achieve these goals, this study adopts a multigroup analysis using a sample from the Generations of Talent data set, which is composed of 1,997 employees in 11 countries. The results of the analysis show that career identity and perceived supervisor support are positively associated with work engagement, while work engagement is positively associated with career commitment and career satisfaction across the study's male and female groups. However, the effect of career development opportunities on work engagement is not significant, and there are no gender differences in the structural relationships among research variables. Given these results, this study suggests implications for both researchers and practitioners.
