The Values Test can help you learn more about your underlying work needs and motivations, and can help you decide what is important to you in a job. The test does this by asking you to rank different aspects of work that represent six underlying work values. Knowing your work values can help you decide what kinds of jobs and careers you might want to explore.

When you complete the test, you will get scores for each of six work values clusters. These scores show how important each work value is to you. In addition to your cluster scores, you will be presented with a list of 739 occupations that are rank-ordered according to how well they match your personal work values. The more a job agrees with your work values, the more likely you are to be satisfied in that job.
