Who should take Career Interest Quizzes?
With the changing nature of work, career quizzes are more critical than ever.
Career interest quizzes were commonly used by students who were trying to discover potential dream jobs and seeking guidance for better career planning. But now, people at any stage of life can use them to confirm their current career’s viability or re-evaluate their decisions made years ago.
The Talent Transformation career interests quiz provides guidance to help you understand your vocational interests to help you pursue a new line of work or progress in your current role. The path to a successful career is rooted in understanding yourself, your interests, motives, preferences, skills, and opportunities. This quiz focuses on your interests and will not provide you with a complete picture unless you reflect on the other elements, such as motives, preferences, and skills, that will impact your career path.
If you have been looking for a free career interests quiz to provide clarity on which career is right for you, then you have come to the right place!

Why choose Talent Transformation’s career quiz?
It is up-to-date and considers the future of work! We have engaged the world’s leading experts to develop our career assessment and the algorithms to provide customized reports with guidance.
We have used American Psychologist John Holland’s highly regarded career development model, the RIASEC Code – also known as the Holland Code. Holland delineated six areas of career interest and six corresponding work environments: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional. He demonstrated that a match between an individual’s interests and work environment brings high job satisfaction and improved performance.
The Holland Code is the basis for other assessment instruments, including the Strong Interest Inventory and the Self-Directed Search.
Several books offer more detailed information about the Holland Code. These titles include 50 Best Jobs for Your Personality (Jist’s Best Jobs, 2012) Dictionary of Holland Occupational Codes (Psychological Assessment Resources, 1996) and CareerCode: Know Your Code, Find Your Fit (Amazon Digital Services, 2012).
Simply exposing your interests provide some value, however, comingling results with occupations and guidance that considers the future of work is where the real magic happens.
What will I learn from taking this quiz?
Your career quiz will identify your top three interest areas from the Holland Code.
We provide two reports. The short report will indicate your interest areas, pinpoint your favorite and least favorite interest areas, and recommend the next steps for further career exploration.
If you want greater detail, you can request a longer report that provides more insights about your top interest areas, identifies possible career options, and suggests more next steps for better career planning
