Career Interest Profiler
Welcome to the Interest Profiler*
This is is a web-based vocational interest assessment instrument. Users receive an accurate, reliable, profile of their vocational interests: we also call these your "career personality types". A better understandig of your types helps you:
identify your work-related interests,
focuses your career search activities, and
link your vocational interests to job types

The test consists of 60 tasks that you will have to rate by how much you would enjoy performing each on a scale of (1) dislike (2) slightly dislike (3) neither like nor dislike (4) slightly enjoy (5) enjoy. The test will take most five to ten minutes to complete.

Try not to think about:
If you have enough education or training to do the work; or
How much money you would make doing the work.
Just think about if you would like or dislike doing the work.

Please take your time answering the questions. You are learning about your interests, so that you can explore work you might like and find rewarding!

There is no need to rush. There are no right or wrong answers!

Please answer all of the 60 questions on the screen below. Then, click [Send and Report] to continue to the report.
