Explore your interests and skills with two simple assessments that will help you decide which careers would be a good fit for you and which level of education will be necessary to complete your plan. Read more about the Indiana Career Explorer and My Next Move below.
Exploring Your Interests
You can narrow down your career options by taking a career interest inventory from the Indiana Career Explorer, a free tool provided by the State of Indiana. Rank which activities you prefer to do. When you’re finished, your highest interests will be matched with careers that you may enjoy. You will have to create a username and password to use the Indiana Career Explorer, but you can retake the career interest inventory (Kuder Career Search with Person Match) any time you like.
Another free way to match your interests to specific careers is My Next Move. You'll answer 60 questions about your interests and be able to explore careers that are a good fit for you. You won't be able to save your results or link them to results for skills assessments, however.
Exploring Your Skills
The Indiana Career Explorer also helps you assess your skills with a skills assessment (Kuder Skills Assessment) that asks how confident you are in accomplishing certain activities. Results list careers that require the skills you have. A work values assessment (Super’s Work Values Inventory-revised) lets you match work-related values with possible careers, too.
