On top of one's career

Hi everybody! Is there an idiomatic way to describe when you are "on the top of your career"?

Your answers will be highly appreciated.

Thanks so much!

Re: Clothes hanger

tony h : Thanks for the useful link. Phil White and Erik : Thank you guys for your input. By the way, when it comes to a general term for the product, can I call it "a peg laundry airer" without the exact number of pegs?

Thanks a lot!
