Career Cluster Interest Survey

Itís all about you! By participating in this 15-minute survey about your interests, Madison College can help you identify which career areas (called clusters) might be the best fit for you. Based on activities you enjoy, your personal qualities, and school subjects you like, the survey ranks which career clusters you might find most fulfilling.

Itís really simple! Check the items that best describe you in each of the 16 boxes. You can check as many or as few items as you like. At the end of the survey, you will receive a list ranking all the career clusters with scores based on your answers. The higher the score, the more likely you are to enjoy a career in that cluster.
