Summary
  • Edgar H. Schein's career anchor theory was unchallenged for nearly 25 years until Daniel C. Feldman and Mark C. Bolino published a theoretical and methodological critique in 1996. They suggested that Schein's career anchor theory needed refining because it was underspecified theoretically and untested empirically. In addition, they presented assumptions, propositions, and criticisms intended to encourage more rigorous career anchor research. This study examined two of Feldman and Bolino's proposals: career anchor plurality and career anchor relationships. In addition, this disseration attempted to use "indices of mutual presence" developed for this study to generate meaningful results from ipsative career anchor data
  • Evidence for some individuals having multiple career anchors was found. Complementary and exclusivity career anchor relationships are identified and a model for representing them is presented. The importance and possible benefit of understanding both an individual's preferrred and "unpreferred" anchors is discussed. The non-reflexive nature of career anchors is explored and the idea of "mutually" exclusive career anchors is rejected. Weaknesses in the octagon shaped career anchor relationships diagram presented by Feldman and Bolino are discussed
  • Career anchor patterns are identified and it is shown that 20% of possible career anchor patterns account for nearly 80% of the career anchor patterns observed in the sample. While a great variety of patterns were found, simpler patterns were more common, with 60% of observed career anchor patterns having 2 or fewer career anchors and 96% having 3 or fewer. Fostering Innovation and Maintaining Balance were the most common career anchors. As a general rule, patterns containing complementary career anchor combinations were more common and patterns containing exclusive career anchor patterns were rarer
