Quizzes that match your skills and interests to jobs
There are quite a few quizzes available that will ask you lots of questions and from your results suggest jobs that might suit you or identify strengths you have.
These can be fun to do and will help you think of jobs you hadn't ever considered before. But be aware, the quizzes are just to help you start thinking about what is important to you and the results are just a suggestion of things you might find interesting, so take the results as a guide rather than a perfect fit!
You will need to explore the suggested jobs in detail to really see if it is something for you.
