Match Your Personality To A Career In Science, Technology, Engineering, Or Math
STEM and green careers promise growth and opportunity, and are key to U.S. competitiveness in the global marketplace.
But how do you know which STEM occupations suit you best?
In just five steps, this easy-to-use assessment helps students and young people discover their personality type and then match it to STEM and green careers.
Users respond to 72 brief items, total their scores, and identify their Holland RIASEC personality type. Next they identify appealing jobs that align with their top personality types. Green job titles are in a green typeface for quick and easy recognition. Another step features a worksheet for researching careers of interest and lists career exploration resources. In the final step, students match their personality to education-related career clusters and career academies. All job titles in the STEM Careers Inventory are from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Information Network (O*NET) database.
Occupational titles can be classified into a number of different systems dependent on either the nationality of the assessment being used or the base theory that the assessment uses. The two primary national occupational title lists are the O*Net code system used in the United States, and the NOC code system used in Canada. These two systems have differing codes but highly similar job titles. As each of the systems have near 30000 different titles, many of which can be used comparably. Any assessment that specifically refers to using the O*Net code can still refer to the NOC code system by using the job title rather than the coded number itself.
