Career Interest Survey
What are your interests?
The career interest survey contains 108 items, each a work-related activity. Those taking the survey are asked to rate, on a scale of one to five, how well they would like to perform that activity. Response options range from one being “dislike very much” to five being “like very much.”
After completion, you’ll add up those scores and find what career interest areas you gravitate toward most.
