Many people struggle to find the right career that both makes them money, and makes them happy. The trick is tying your personal interests to your professional skills so that you actually enjoy what you do. With that said, it can be tricky to identify professional opportunities when your interests vary widely, don’t vary at all, or can’t realistically be translated to a career…or so you may think.
The 10 question quiz below is designed to first highlight areas where you’re most likely to enjoy yourself, and then provide potential career fields that match. You may be surprised to find that your interests can easily be tied to a professional setting. Utilize what you learn to identify and land your dream job by pulling from your personal interests.
