Thinking of changing careers? Try these online quizzes
Are you currently considering changing careers but are not sure whether your proposed career choice is going to suit your interests, personality and preferred way of working?
If so, these online career quizzes may help with your career transition decision:
- The Job Outlook Career Quiz – This 3-stage quiz starts by presenting a series of work activities and asking users to select the ones which appeal the most. Results are then provided on the types of work suited to the user and their career matches. Each career match provides a salary guide, the education and training necessary for the occupation, and a breakdown of work activities. The quiz takes less than 5 minutes to complete.
- Skills Match – The Job Outlook website also contains this online quiz which allows users to enter the types of jobs they have previously held. From this, the quiz lists out skills used by these past jobs and then matches future jobs which can also utilise these skills. Skills Match takes only minutes to complete and is great for people who are unsure what skills they have and how these can transfer to other occupations.
- Your Future Career – This very simple quiz on the Your Career website asks some brief questions about interests, deal breakers (the working conditions users aren’t interested in) and the industry which users may be keen to work in. Career matches are then calculated and a detailed list of occupations which might suit the user are provided. Users can delve deeper into each occupation to get a detailed description of each occupation, the qualifications required and skills needed. This quiz takes less than 2 minutes to complete.
- Career Crush –Torrens University Australia has developed this light-hearted, colourful and informal online career quiz which is targeted at high school students but can be used by people at all stages of their working life when trying to understand more about themselves and the sector they are most suited to. Final results are brief and are more of a guide on work matches than other online quizzes reviewed in this article. Results are provided in less than 5 minutes.
