General Guidelines

There are a total of 60 questions about work activities that some people do on their jobs. Read each question carefully and decide how you would feel about doing each type of work:     ◊ Strongly Dislike    ◊ Dislike    ◊ Unsure   ◊ Like    ◊ Strongly Like

Try NOT to think about:
If you have enough education or training to do the work; or
How much money you would make doing the work.
Just think about if you would like or dislike doing the work.

There are no right or wrong answers!
Please take your time answering the questions. There is no need to rush!

You are learning about your interests, so that you can explore work you might like and find rewarding!
