The O*NET Interest Profiler is a vocational assessment instrument that suggests careers based on work activity preferences. Four resources provide the functionality of the Interest Profiler:

  1. Short Form Questions returns the list of questions asked in the assessment. For mobile applications desiring a shorter questions list, a Mini-IP 30-question variant is available.
  2. Results returns information about a user's interests, based on their Interest Profiler answers.
  3. Job Zones returns informative text about the five O*NET Job Zones, which can be used to filter career results.
  4. Matching careers returns My Next Move careers matching a user's interest results, Interest Profiler answers, or a single selected interest area.
