    • Career quizzes are a fun way to start the conversation with yourself about your career choice. A quiz or two is not likely to solve your career concerns but quizzes are a good way to start thinking in the right direction. Finding the right career should not begin with choosing a subject area as understanding the ways you most prefer to work. Do you like action or analysis in your career?
