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 or skills you have that will be useful in future study or work.


These can be fun to do and will help you find out more about lots of jobs that might suit you. But remember, 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 see if they are really what you want. The Careerpilot Job Profiles have lots of detail to help you decide.

Do the Careerpilot job sector quiz and see which sector could offer you what you want.

If you want to do other quizzes here are a few ideas but you will have to register to use them.
