Career Anchors Inventory "designed to help people uncover their real values and make better career decisions"
The Career Anchors Instrument provides a systematic way of exploring how you perceive yourself, based on your own experiences. The instrument is divided into three parts: the orientations inventory, the career anchor interview, and the conceptual material. Career Anchors help you: define the themes and patterns dominant in your life, understand your own approach to work and a career, provide reasons for choices, and take steps to fulfill your own self-image.
