About the test

The Career Motivators test features 36 sets of 5 statements that describe various intrinsic and extrinsic factors that might motivate you in a job. You’ll need to rank these statements according to their importance to you. At the end of the test, your results will be scored to reveal how you rank on each of our intrinsic and extrinsic motivational dimensions.

The test can be taken for free, but to gain access to your full results and your downloadable report, access must be purchased. The results from this test contribute to your final career matches on CareerHunter, if you choose to proceed to purchase full access.

Good to know

Be yourself

When taking the test, try to answer questions as faithfully to your motivations as possible. If you don’t, you will likely receive inaccurate results.

Keep an open mind

It’s important to remain open to any indications of motivation you never considered before, and to realize that motivations often shift over time.

Don’t stress

Try not to let stress get the better of you. When you stress, you’re likely to overthink your answers, and this can affect your results and career matches.

Don’t worry about failing

There are no right or wrong answers in this test. When completing the test, just try to think about what motivates you to do a job and nothing else.
