Although the psychology and social science "under the hood" of the Career Anchors vehicle is quite complex and based on decades of research, the methodology of using the system itself is clear and easy to understand.

1. Take the Self-Assessment
The Career Anchors Self-Assessment consists of 40 thought-provoking questions that Participants answer according to how true the item is for them individually. There are no "wrong" answers -- only honest answers. Participants answer Never, Seldom, Often, or Always to each item. Participants can revise their answers before submitting the survey, and can save an incomplete survey to finish later.

2. Submit Self-Assessment
When Participants finish their surveys, they click the Submit button. The system analyzes the answers, and generates an easy-to-interpret Career Anchors Report almost immediately.
