Matching Personality to Career Choices
As you can see from these brief descriptions, the personality component of JobQuiz begins the process of matching your overarching personality to certain major categories of careers. It isn’t difficult to see how different types of personality would align with certain careers.
For example, people with high Counselor personality scores may be drawn to careers such as adult literacy, child care, educational counseling, nursing, social work, occupational therapy, or home health care.
Those with high Examiner scores may find they have an interest in accounting, engineering, architecture, science or computer programming. Their strong analytical skills would serve them well in any of these career categories.
People with the Rock personality style are highly flexible in their abilities and thus have a broad range of possible careers. This group could be described as a “Jack of all trades” who demonstrate solid work performance in many different areas. Possible career areas would include mechanical, operational, service, support, supervisory, trades and construction.
In comparison, the Seeker personality style is strongly driven toward high achievement and leadership roles. As a group, they enjoy the challenge of demanding and difficult careers. Seekers would show interest in careers such as entrepreneur, healthcare professionals, management and executive, law, administration, and high-stress careers such as air traffic controller.
Finally, the Uniter style is drawn to careers that reward energy and creativity. They thrive is roles such as education, sales, and marketing. Specific jobs might include school teacher, musician, public relations, training specialist, graphic designer, and author.
