The Career Interests Profiler assesses your interest in a variety of activities, industries and occupations to determine the careers and areas of study you are most likely to enjoy. It is based on over 5 years of research with people aged 15-55 and contains an extensive database of more than 500 careers and courses.
Is this an accurate assessment?
The Career Interests Profiler was developed by professional Career Consultant, Katie Roberts (B Sc. (Psych & Mgmt), MBTI®, CDAA). Katie is the Director of Katie Roberts Career Consulting and a 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 assessment, aiming to accurately identify the careers that best suit an individual’s interests and values.
After 5 years of research with people aged 15-55 years, I launched the Career Interests Profiler. Since it was launched, people from all over the world including Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom have taken the assessment to help them make an informed career choice. The feedback has been very positive with a number of Career Advisors, Employment Consultants and Teachers now recommending it to their students and clients.”

How does it work?
The 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.
At the end of the assessment, you will receive your Career Report detailing your highest scoring careers, suggested areas of study, an action plan and recommended websites.
What else can I get?
For a comprehensive career assessment that assesses your interests and personality, we recommend you take the Career Personality Profiler in addition to the Career Interests Profiler.
In your Career Personality Report you will discover the careers that suit your personality type and learn about your preferred work tasks and ideal work environment.
Why should I take this assessment?
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 the careers and courses that you are most likely to enjoy, providing you with a lifestyle choice, not just a job. By completing the assessment, you will gain an insight into the careers that match your interests, values and personality, the first step to finding a job you love.
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
