Interest Profiler


Read each question about work activities of various professions and decide how you would feel about doing each type of activity (Strongly Dislike, Dislike, Unsure, Like, Strongly Like). Do not base your response on whether you have enough education/training to do the work, nor how much money you would make doing it. Just think about whether you like or dislike doing the work.

There are no right or wrong answers and no need to rush! You are learning about your interests so you can explore job options you might like and find rewarding.
