O*NET® Interest Profiler Short Form
The O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form is a web-based vocational interest assessment instrument. Users receive an accurate, reliable profile of their vocational interests that:
- helps them identify their work-related interests,
- focuses career search activities, and
- enables them to link their vocational interests to O*NET-SOC occupations.
This instrument is a web-based, self-assessment career exploration tool that can help people discover the type of work activities and occupations that are related to their interests. The instrument is composed of 60 items and measures six types of occupational interests.
The O*NET Interest Profiler Short Form was developed to aid in career exploration settings where it is beneficial for interest assessments to be completed and discussed in a short amount of time (e.g., career counseling and consultation settings). Additionally, because the Interest Profiler Short Form is self-administered via the web, it may offer greater access to individuals seeking an interest assessment.
The O*NET Interest Profiler is also available in paper-and-pencil and computerized formats. For more information about the paper and pencil version of this instrument, please see O*NET Interest Profiler.
