The current job market provides rich and new opportunities for career development and career guidance for the young people. Globalization and digitization enable them not only to work in different foreign countries but also bring the new form of work and cooperation. It is mainly up to them to decide which strategies and career plans they formulate and follow and which challenges are worth to withdraw. Numerous possibilities can stimulate individuals on one hand but also cause confusion, chaos and uncertainty. Therefore, the knowledge of their strengths and personality profile becomes a necessity when deciding on their further career and career guidance. Being able to identify their career anchor can reinforce the determination to decide. Career anchors are formed throughout the years after entering their job. It reflects the perception of their talent, abilities, motivation, needs, attitudes and value of the individual. The career anchor is the strong factor influencing choice, routing, and career preferences. One career anchor usually dominates in the person and it can be used in different types of occupation.

The paper presents the results of the survey aimed at mapping preferences of individual career anchors in Czech students of the first year of doctoral studies at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences and the Faculty of Forestry and Wood Sciences at CULS Prague. Differences are analysed between the gender of respondents and their affiliation to the faculty. The results show that in general the doctoral students of male sex prefer mainly the following career anchors technic-functional competence, autonomy and managerial competencies. While students of female sex prefer anchor lifestyle competence and dedication to cause. From the results, it is possible to judge what kind of students tend to study a doctoral degree. This knowledge is critical in designing people's motivation to study doctoral studies.
