Looking for the Perfect Career? Pick Your Favorite Color
Ah, if only we could determine the best career for us as easily as we can choose a favorite color. Wait a minute – we can!
Are you looking for the perfect career fit?
For those of us interested in instant gratification and without the time or inclination to read informative yet exhausting books like What Color Is Your Parachute (which is a great read for anybody by the way), there are indeed ways to help you:
- Find the right career path
- Tweak your existing job to suit your talents
- Affirm that you are already working in the best suited career to your personality
…and all by simply looking at pretty colors.
The Color Career Counselor is an online personality test offered by Career Builder, and as such is the world’s only validated color-based personality test for career compatibility. The test is free, and can be found at careerpath.com, along with a few other interesting career assessment tests and tidbits of career advice.
The multi-patented Dewey Color System is the guts behind the seemingly simple test that involves nothing more than choosing favorite and least favorite colors. But looks can be deceiving, as the relationship between colors and career compatibility can be amazingly precise.
I took the test for giggles, and in less than two minutes had a report that described my personality in an eerily accurate manner. I was given two best career categories, which each broke down further to list specific occupations and workplaces that I would excel in.
Although the test is free, the folks who patented this system aren’t in it for nothing. The short career report, although informative, may not have been enough for me if I needed to make a career change. So for an extra fee, you can order the full meal deal to see what your color choices reveal about your best-suited career.
At the very least, it’s a fun way to get a little insight into your personality and career traits. Or at least figure out what your favorite color really is. Either way.
