Quick Career Quizzes


Who doesn’t love a good quiz? While these ones probably shouldn’t be taken too seriously, they can help you to start thinking about your career path. Identifying your strengths, interests and personality type are good starting points when trying to decide what direction you want your career to take. Read on to check out some fun career quizzes you can do on your daily commute!

What should your college major actually be? | Buzzfeed


Asking the hard-hitting questions, such as ‘What’s the one thing you’d grab if your house was burning down?’ and ‘What’s the longest you’re comfortable going without a shower?’ this quiz is a bit of fun and definitely not one to base major life choices on. Still, it’s good to start thinking about where your interests lie!


What career should you actually have? | Buzzfeed


For someone who struggles to work up the motivation to go to the gym regularly, having a quiz tell you that you should be an athlete is a bit of a stretch. But it does note one or two of your strengths, as drawn from your answers, which is always good to consider.


What’s your dream career? | FabJob


This quiz is the quickest of the lot. It won’t give you a specific answer as to your ‘dream career’, but it will give you a general overview of the type of work you could enjoy doing – such as working with information. It also gives you a list of possible career choices which could lead to some new ideas about what path to pursue!


TypeFinder personality test | Truity


This quiz works on a scale basis to calculate your personality type – from extrovert to introvert; intuitive to sensor; feeler to thinker. Knowing your personality type helps you judge your strengths and weaknesses and can aid you in thinking about what sort of work environment would suit you best.

(As this is a free research version it asks you for some information, but you can just click the ‘Get my results’ button on the bottom right of the screen to bypass it).

Have fun, and don’t forget that it’s never too soon to plan for your future!
