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.
3. View Results
Participants and Administrators can log into the system to view the Career Anchors report, which is filled with illuminating information, ideas, recommendations, and solid career guidance. The results are always kept private, safe, and secure. Career Anchor reports can be easily printed out or downloaded to a computer for future reference.
