Find the type of work that best suits your personal tastes and talents.

The link below will take you to a site called the "O*Net Interest Profiler". This site, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, will ask you a series of questions, which will take you about 10 minutes to answer. Your responses will then be scored to offer you a rating on six different interest domains, known as:

  • Realistic
  • Investigative
  • Artistic
  • Social
  • Enterprising
  • Conventional

Next, open the website below, O*Net Online, to access a searchable online careers database.

If you have taken the preceding O*Net Interest Profiler, then you can use your highest-scoring interest domains to narrow in on careers that would best suit your talents and interests. Simply click the link below, then click on "Advanced Search" and then select "Interests." You will see links to each of the six interest areas (realistic, investigative, etc.). Choose the interest domain on which you received the highest score (you can also search for careers that combine up to three of the domains to narrow your search further).
