Career Interest Tests

Career Interest Tests that Answer:
What is My Career Interest?

Career Interest Tests helps you find your best career by answering the question: What is My Career Interest? Career Interest Assessments are assessment tests that assess your interests – what you like and enjoy. These assessments do not measure your abilities, aptitudes, values or personality. Career Interest Assessments are the best way to translate what you like into careers you’ll enjoy.

Career Interest Assessments could be divided into two categories: Career Interest Inventory or Career Interest Profiler Assessments. Career Interest Inventory assessments ask questions that focus on your likes in terms of tasks, activities, school subjects and jobs to produce a long list of enjoyable careers. In additon, you receive no additional information about these occupations but rather general information about the skills and education needed to perform these careers. On the other hand, Career Interest Profiler Assessments measure the same items but produce the top careers matching your likes (usually around 10), specific skills needed and tasks performed by each of these, plus a ranking of your the work activities or tasks you like the most and least, and ranking of all of the occupations for which they tested you.

Honestly, the best Career Interest Assessment is the Strong Interest Inventory (aka Strong test). It is a Career Interest Profiler Assessment providing you with detailed information about your top ranking work tasks and top matching careers. It has been extensively researched and frequently revised which has been necessary to provide contemporary occupational listings. Based on the work of J. W. Strong, the Strong Interest Inventory, sometimes referred to as the Strong test, measures your likes in four categories: General Occupation Themes, Basic Interest Scales (work activities and tasks), and Occupational Scales and produces various reports for Adult, College and High School audiences. It can also be combined with the Myers Briggs Personality Test to produce additional career reports that blend both interests and personal style into one report.

Career Interest Inventory tests include Career Orientation Preferences System and Self-Directed Search. The results produced are much more generic and if cost is an issue this is the only viable option. The Self-Directed Search has been in use since the 1950’s. It is extremely useful for identifying leisure activities because it provides a long list of hobby or recreational pursuits that fits with your general interests. The advantage of the Career Orientation Preferences Systems is that it can be combined with the career ability and career values assessment tests to produce information that will help you narrow down the long list of career interests to the most suitable choice given these other factors. Assessments are not.

Free Career Interest Tests should be viewed with suspicion. The Career Profiler has determined that most free career assessement tests are “ploys”. In some cases, the free career interest assessment test produces a very basic report which is used to entice you into purchasing the full version which may or may not have received adequate research necessary to produce valid and reliable results. In other cases, the free career interest assessment test is a ploy to gather information about you, keep you engage so long that you “can’t back out now” or respond to suggestions to seek degree information from specific, and usually for-profit, colleges.
