This version of the O*NET Interest Profiler contains 30 questions, each describing a work activity. This service is offered to developers working on a mobile application or within other time-constrained settings. The full, 60-question desktop version is recommended when possible. The results from either version can be used with the other IP services below.

The assessment taker should be offered five possible answers, describing how they would feel about doing each type of work:

  1. Strongly Dislike
  2. Dislike
  3. Unsure
  4. Like
  5. Strongly Like

Optionally, these choices can be illustrated with the emoji-style graphics shown below. Multiple sizes and formats may be downloaded from the O*NET Resource Center's Graphics page.

These options, and their corresponding values, are provided in the <answer_options> element. The application should record the value of each answer -- 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 -- and build a string of 60 characters containing all answers in order. This string will be used as the answers parameter for obtaining Interest Profiler results.

Each question pertains to one of six interest areas, given in the <area> element. By default, 12 questions are returned at a time. To navigate the full set of questions, use the link rel="next" and link rel="prev" elements, or provide start and end parameters to jump directly to the desired results.
