Preference Profile

When you are deciding on a career path, it is important to consider whether or not your work preferences and patterns would match up with the demands of your prospective profession.  This quiz will help you think about your work patterns – things like how you process information and how you prefer to work and interact.

Take Action:

Take the skill test linked below. Once you have completed the test, you will be provided with an analysis of your work preferences. 

On the “Careers by trait” tab, you can enter your preferences again and the site will generate a list of professions that might match up well with your work preferences.  If you want to learn more, the “Professional traits” tab further explains the categories of the test.  The “Browse careers” tab allows you to explore potential career paths.  

These types of tests should not be the sole determinant in your career decisions, but they will assist you in deciding what type of job and work environment you would ultimately thrive in.
