Six good reasons to take Talent Transformation’s Career Quiz:

Find direction

Identify your areas of interest (indeed, your passion) and plan for your future jobs.

Save time and money

Talent Transformation is a charitable foundation and provides quizzes and tests free of charge. So, answering a few questions and reading the guidance keeps you from wasting time, energy, and money exploring careers that are unlikely to suit you.

Avoid career-related frustration

Frustrations at work stem not from a lack of interest, and potentially a bad boss, not a lack of ability. Knowing your career interests helps you select career options that suit your underlying interests and personality traits.

Explore new options

Talent Transformation customizes every career guidance report to match your interests. These reports use artificial intelligence (AI) to suggest careers of interest using the Occupational Information Network (O*Net) database of 923 occupations.

Build confidence 

Being aware of your career interests enhances your sense of direction and helps you feel more confident about your career choice.

Achieve career success 

Many studies have revealed the correlation between career interests, high job satisfaction, and high performance.

How will the guidance help me?  

An accurate evaluation of your career interests can open the doors to potential opportunities, job satisfaction, and higher performance.

And a fulfilling career can dramatically increase your well-being, happiness, and self-confidence. Taking the career quiz and heeding the guidance will help you make better decisions.

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.

The Talent Transformation Career Interests Quiz is a significant first step to finding the right career. The quiz is easy to answer and takes only a few minutes. After you finish, you will receive a personalized guidance report with tips and tricks to find careers that would suit you.
