  • Who can use Career Hunter?

    Career Hunter is open to everyone, regardless of what stage they are at in their career – from school leavers to career changers and experienced professionals. Our aim is to educate people all ages and backgrounds about their options and to match them to careers that align with their strengths, interests and personality.

  • Can I retake a test?

    Yes. You can retake the self-assessment tests (Career Interests, Personality and Motivation) whenever you like. The aptitude tests (Abstract, Numerical and Verbal Reasoning), however, can only be retaken once every 10 days.

  • How do I complete the tests?

    Career Hunter is comprised of 3 self-assessment tests (Career Interests, Work Personality and Career Motivators) and 3 aptitude tests (Abstract Reasoning, Numerical Reasoning and Verbal Reasoning).

    The self-assessment tests are completed using a ranking system. Each test is comprised of a series of statements which you need to rank in order of priority. Simply drag and drop each statement to the appropriate position (the top position represents the highest priority and the bottom position represents the lowest priority). To complete these tests on a mobile or tablet device, please use the navigator on the right-hand side to scroll the page.

    The aptitude tests are comprised of multi-choice questions which you need to correctly answer based on the accompanying information presented in text, graphs and diagrams.

  • Who built the Career Hunter tests?

    The Career Hunter tests were built by a team of psychologists, professionals and experts, and are based on the latest scientifically proven methods and algorithms.

    The information contained in our career reports has been compiled from various resources, including GOV.UK, Prospects, the National Careers Service, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and O*NET.

  • How many industries will my results be compared against?

    The Career Interests test compares your answers against 19 different industries in order to recommend the top 3 industries in which you should consider pursuing a career. Some of the industries that we look at to determine your compatibility include Construction, Hospitality, and Teaching and Education.

    It’s important to remember that your results in the Career Interests may vary significantly from your final result upon completing all 6 tests that comprise the Career Hunter system. This is because what you want to do can be different from what suits your work personality type, motivations and capabilities.

  • Can I change the test language?

    The Career Hunter platform is currently only available in English. However, this may change in the future, so do keep a lookout for additional languages!

  • Will my results be shared with anyone?

    No. Your results are strictly confidential and will be treated as such. It is entirely up to you if, how and with whom you share them. You also have the option to share your test results on various social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or Google+ using the share buttons provided.

  • How long will it take to receive my results?

    Your results are displayed instantly upon completing each test.

  • How can I prepare for the tests?

    Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to prepare for a psychometric or self-assessment test and, in effect, improve your overall score – check out our comprehensive guides on the Our Career Tests page to learn how.

    Meanwhile, our sister site CareerAddict provides an excellent resource for career testing that you might useful when preparing for the Career Hunter tests.

    Even if you’re still not fully prepared, our tests feature practice questions with answers to help you get started.

  • I submitted an incomplete test – does it matter?

    Yes. Submitting a test that is incomplete will return inaccurate results. You are, therefore, advised to answer all of the tests’ questions to ensure your results are as accurate as possible.

  • I’m colour-blind. Will this affect my results?

    Our Abstract Reasoning Test uses sequences of shapes of different sizes and colours. While every effort was made to make these colours distinguishable to all users of the Career Hunter platform, some people might find completing the test difficult and this could negatively impact their results.

  • What is the career report?

    Upon purchasing full access to Career Hunter and completing all 6 tests, you’ll receive a personalised 55+ page career report which includes an in-depth analysis of your test results based on your performance, as well as comprehensive information about salaries, entry requirements and working hours for the careers you’ve been matched with.

  • Where can I view my career report?

    You can find your personalised career report in your Profile page where you will be able to download it as a PDF.

  • What are Sten scores?

    Sten, Standard Ten, scores are a 10-point scale where 1 represents the lowest category and 10 the highest category. Sten scores have a mean of 5.5 and a standard deviation of 2.

  • What are T-scores?

    T-scores are standardised test scores ranging from 20 to 80. They have a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 10, and are used to tell respondents how far away their score is from the mean. For example, if you have a T-score of 60, it is one standard deviation above the mean.
