What type of job fits you best?

There are six work environments that all jobs fall under:

Artistic jobs frequently involve working with forms, designs, and patterns. They
often require self-expression and can be done without a clear set of rules.

Conventional jobs frequently involve following set procedures and routines.
These jobs can include working with data and details more than with ideas.

Enterprising jobs frequently involve starting up and carrying out projects. These
jobs can involve leading people, making many decisions, and risk-taking.

Investigative jobs frequently involve working with ideas and require a lot of
thinking. These jobs can involve searching for facts and figuring out problems.

Realistic jobs frequently involve hands-on problems and solutions. They often
deal with plants, animals, and materials like wood and machinery. Many require
working outside and do not involve paperwork or working closely with others.

Social jobs frequently involve working with, communicating with, and teaching
people. These jobs often involve helping or providing service to others.
