About the Career Interests Profiler

The Career Interests Profiler assesses your interest in a variety of activities, industries and occupations to identify potential career paths and areas of study. It is based on your individual preferences and is designed to help you discover the type of work you are most likely to enjoy. This career assessment tool is suitable for a wide range of people and contains an extensive database of careers and areas of study.

The Career Interests Profiler was developed by Katie Roberts (B Sc. (Psych & Mgmt), MBTI®, CDAA). Katie is the Director of Katie Roberts Career Consulting and a professional member of the Career Development Association of Australia.

“When I first started working as a Career Consultant, I tested a number of career assessments to find a suitable one to use with my clients. Unfortunately the majority of assessments I tested produced inaccurate results. As a result, I developed my own career assessment tool, aiming to accurately identify potential careers and areas of study based on an individual’s interests and values.

Since launching the Career Interests Profiler, people from a wide range of backgrounds have taken the assessment to help them make an informed career choice. The feedback has been very positive with a number of Career Advisors and Employment Consultants now recommending it to their clients.” 

How does it work?

The career assessment takes approximately 20 minutes and involves rating your level of interest in a variety of activities, industries and occupations from strongly like to strongly dislike.

The Reports

The reports generated from taking the Career Interests Profiler and the Career Personality Profiler are based solely on the responses you have supplied in the online questionnaires. The Career Interests Profiler and the Career Personality Profiler are not psychometric tests. They are career assessment tools that are designed to help you learn more about your individual preferences.

After taking the career assessments, we recommend you research your career options in detail. Find out what is involved in each one on a day-to-day basis, the educational requirements, salary information and whether there are job opportunities available in your area. We also recommend speaking to people who already work in those careers to get more in-depth information about what a typical day looks like. This will help you make an informed career choice.

Why should I take this career assessment tool?

According to a study conducted by Professor Charles Birch and Management Consultant David Paul, titled ‘Life and Work,’ 88% of people are dissatisfied with their job. Unhappiness at work not only affects you, it also affects your family and friends.

Considering the number of hours we work each week, it is important that we find a job that interests us. Life is short! Why not enjoy each day rather than spend every week looking forward to the weekend?

Our career assessment identifies potential career paths and areas of study that you are most likely to enjoy, providing you with a lifestyle choice, not just a job.
