About This Quiz

When you wake up in the morning, are you stoked for the day that lies ahead of you? Or do you hit the alarm four times before scraping yourself out of bed? Does the idea of grappling with each's day's common work problems sound thrilling, or do you feel like your efforts are essentially meaningless? 

In this quiz, we're looking at work, specifically the question of whether your career is right for you. If you're feeling "meh" about the daily grind, it might be time to start considering a new path. No job is all fun and games, but when you're in the right career, the benefits usually outweigh the drawbacks and you're able to tolerate everyday setbacks and disappointments. On the other hand, if even the best days at work leave you feeling tired and empty, you probably aren't living your best career life.

To figure out how you feel about your career, we're going to ask you some yes and no questions about your stress level, job satisfaction and hobbies. We want to know whether you like your coworkers, if you're getting any mentoring and how you feel at the end of the work day. At the end of the quiz, our supercomputers will calculate your answers and guess whether you're in your job to stay or are eyeing some new options. Want to find out if we'll get it right? Let's play!
