What Is A Career Test ?

Our unique Career Interest Test determines your true passion
and matches it with a list of careers and job titles.

By Michael T. Robinson

Many people have never discovered what they are deeply interested in. Others, in their struggle to get an education, find jobs, raise families, pay bills and survive have forgotten what truly interests them.

Building your career around the type of work that interests you is very powerful. I am sure you will agree success comes much easier when you are doing work you are passionate about.

Dick's Parachute series is the best selling Job Hunting and Career Planning book ever written. It's so good they re-print it every year.

Dick took our Career Interest Test in 2000 and has been recommending it ever since.

Why should you take our Career Interest Test?


H. G. , 36 year old client from Colorado says:

"The Career Interest Report helped me get clarity on what careers would be a good fit for me.  I had already considered some careers mentioned and it was nice to have confirmation that I was on track with looking at those career options."

"The report also recommended some careers I had not considered - so I feel like I have more options than I thought I had going into the test."


The Career Interest Test gives you powerful insights into the type of work that is right for you. It helps you figure out if you have been in the wrong type of job, and it will help point you in the right direction.


The Career Interest Test can help you if:

  • You are looking for new Career Ideas
  • You want a list of careers that match your Interests
  • You want to know what type of work you can be passionate about
  • You want help with career direction

  • You want guidance to move you in a new direction
  • You don't want to keep doing the same type of work, even if you are very good at it.

How is our Career Interest Test different?

At CareerPlanner.com, we have a very unique ability to "see" and "visualize" what type of work you will enjoy and be successful at. 

We developed this ability while working in real businesses where, in the process of building teams and even entire companies we interviewed thousands of people, hired hundreds, and then worked with those people day in and day out. 

We were always working in tough, competitive business situations, either building businesses from scratch or turning around failing businesses. Results counted. Performance mattered. Successful people rose to the top to collect the big pay checks. Unsuccessful people fell to the bottom.

We know what it takes to be successful and how to match people with careers they will love.

This is not text book stuff. It's been proven.

The technology, tools and methods we use at CareerPlanner.com are not something you will find elsewhere.

Personally, I wonder why people hesitate to take the Career Interest Test. After all, it's 100% guaranteed. And it costs less than a fancy meal at a restaurant.

How does our "Career Interest Test" work?

There are 180 true - false questions that take less than 18 minutes to complete. There are no advertisements to get in your way like on other online career tests.

You take the test online. There is no paper, no test booklets. Any computer connected to the internet works just fine.

After completing the test you can pick up your Career Interest Test Report by signing back in on our home page or by following the link we email you. We keep your report in a secure location on our servers.

You can save it to your hard disk and print it out if you like. But we will always keep a copy for you.

The report is typically 15 pages long. Don't worry, it's very easy reading. It does not contain any advertisements. 

The report will reveal your personal "Career Code" also known as your Holland Code or your Career Type. 


What is your Career Code?

Your Career Code is unique to you, however it does change over time.  You should re-take the career interest test every seven years or after any major life changing event such as losing a job or a getting a divorce.

Your report will contain a list of specific careers and job titles that match your career code. You can also use your career code to search through our list of over 12,000 careers.

In addition to learning your career type, the report will tell you which careers are a good match for you and which you should avoid. 

It will also explain why certain careers are a good match. This knowledge will help you make better career decisions. It will also help you find a career that is both rewarding and satisfying.


The Benefits of Knowing Your Career Code (Your Holland Code)

Build Confidence in Your New Career Direction ?
It takes courage and guts to make a career change. The older you are the harder it becomes. Knowing your career code will help you decide on the right career and will give you confidence so you can move forward.

Validate Your Career Ideas
If you already have an idea for a new career, knowing your career code will help validate your ideas. It's better to know now if your idea for a new career is going to be a bad fit.

Get Objective Career Direction
Your career interest test report will give you something that is very hard to come by: objective, unbiased, and accurate career advice.

It's Fast

D.F. a software engineer in Southern California said:

"Thank you for the insight that your Career Interest Test Report gave me.

By highlighting my interest in Artistic activities (in addition to my interest in Investigative activities which I was already aware of), you prompted me to explore and nurture my creative side, resulting in the production of my first music CD!

You also made me aware of the necessity of ensuring that my career, while primarily technical, still includes a creative element." 


Will your Career Interest Test be accurate & reliable?

The fundamental technology behind our Career Interest Test has been in use for over 50 years. However, in 1998 we released a vastly improved version that incorporates our own special technology.

Since then we have helped thousands of clients around the world. Although we are based in the US, we have Career Test clients from the UK, Canada, China, India, Singapore, Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Italy, Germany, Saudi Arabia, etc.

Even with our 100% money back guarantee, we hardly ever see requests for a refund.


A.H. another Career Interest Test customer says:

"First off, THE TEST. I must say this, finally, there is a test, with results that make sense.

This report actually told me something that I could do something with.

I have taken other online tests, including Dr. Holland's version of the self Assessment. In each of those experiences I noted two things; first, that the information gathered, though valuable in general terms, had little if any application in the year 2008.

What I mean is, technology, modern artistic value, and other newer aged terms and circumstances are allowed for in your Career Interest Test, where in the other versions, nothing relating to the PRESENT DAY work force was addressed, therefore, my assessment in the technical (as it related to general...) fields was absent. Long story short...THANKS. You have a test that truly is a cut above."


Is this an Aptitude Test?

Our Career Interest Test will indirectly measure your aptitude however this is not an aptitude test.

We won't test your math skills, your hand-eye coordination, nor your ability for spatial visualization.


Ability is far less important than interest. 

If you are passionate about a type of work, you will become very good at it. You will easily find the time to study, practice, learn etc.  You will do whatever it takes to succeed.

It's that simple. 

The reverse is not true. If you are good at doing something i.e. you have a strong aptitude for something, it does not mean you will enjoy it nor be successful at it.

It's all about discovering what you are truly interested in.
