    • Are you willing to complete the educational requirements for the job?
    • Are you physically capable (lifting, climbing, standing) of doing the job?
    • Does your personality align with the job?
  2. Research Careers

    ‐ Watch some of the Career Videos on this site, starting with some of those that appear in the results of the quiz. Consider how these match up with your skills and your willingness to do what it takes to prepare for this career. Don't think that you are limited to careers listed in your quiz results!

    • Are you willing to work in the environment required for the job? (inside vs.outside, number of hours/days required each week, alone vs.teamwork, travel vs. no travel, casual vs. business attire, etc.)
    • Are there opportunities for this career in the area in which you would like to live?
