Frequently Asked Questions
General Information & stats
What is My Career Match?
My Career Match is an online preference based behavioural assessment that helps
students choose a career path that matches their natural gifts and talents. When
used in conjunction with other career adviser tools My Career Match adds a
holistic view of potential opportunities and career pathways.
What's in the report?
Each student receives their own personal career profile which includes an
analysis of their personality style, career paths which may be suited to them,
insights into their work-related strengths and talents, suitable jobs for their
personality style, tips on how to get ahead, information to use in their resume,
and other valuable confidence boosting information.
How does it work?
My Career Match uses the same assessment tools Fortune 500 companies use to
find the right person for the job. Profiles are broken into 32 groups of
questions. Each group consists of four statements. Students simply choose one
that is most like them and one that is least. Within a few minutes of completing
the profile a career report is sent via email based on their responses.
On what is My Career Match based?
Based on the theories of personality types and proven behavioural analysis from
psychologists Carl Jung and William Marston, the My Career Match personality
test is based on the premise that there are four basic personality types:
Drivers, Promoters, Supporters and Analysers. Most people have both a dominant
and a secondary personality type, and this particular combination to a large
extent determines how a person behaves in different situations, what their
innate tendencies are, and what work environments they are most likely to thrive

My Career Match has undergone extensive reliability and validity testing and has
demonstrated a high level of accuracy - over 85% - in assessing and defining
