Matching Your Interests and Career Choice—Job Activities # 9003

In her book, Finding a Career that Works for You, Wilma Felman helps readers identify their interests before choosing a career. Fellman states that, in general, jobs fall into one of six interest clusters (or may be a blend of more than one). This tool, in addition to a few others from her book (Tools # 9002 and 9004), will help you think about your interests as you plan your career.
