• The single most important question you will ever ask yourself is, “Why am I here?” It is a question that most of us struggle with at some point in our lives; and for some of us the answer just isn’t obvious. Our career choice is often aligned with our purpose; and when our purpose is unknown, we may find ourselves in jobs that just don’t feel satisfying and rewarding.

    If you feel like you are in a rut; then perhaps understanding your natural vocational attraction might clue you into what direction to look towards in finding your purpose. Today’s assessment, based on the Holland theory, will help you understand what vocation you are naturally attracted to and can be used to help strengthen your career well-being.

    Why is this so important? Most people fit into one of six vocational attraction types: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising and Conventional. Often workplaces that have a high number of a particular type will create an environment conducive to the comfort and success of that particular type. People who can work in environments that support their vocational attraction type are more likely to thrive and to find satisfaction in their job.

    Because purpose is often closely tied to career choice; knowing your vocational attraction type will give you insight into the activities and skills that will support your purpose. Take the assessment and find out your best vocational fit. You will also get some examples of jobs that fit in that vocational category.
