O*Net Interest Profiler

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, the O*NET Interest Profiler helps you identify your interests and how they relate to the world of work. By answering 60 questions, the Profiler provides you with a framework for what careers align with your interests. Alternatively, on the O*Net main website, you can explore careers by industry or key words to learn more about what different jobs require in terms of skills, knowledge, and abilities.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

Use the Myers-Briggs to discover where you prefer to focus your attention, how you take in information, and how your preferences affect your decision-making style. Your results on the assessment tool will give you a working hypothesis about your "personality type." This website provides an abbreviated version of the full assessment.
