What is CareerQuest

CareerQuest is a great tool that recommends jobs based on your actual interests. Keep all your favourite jobs in one place and compare them.

CareerQuest helps people discover jobs through an online questionnaire. It analyses people’s interest in different types of work, and matches these interests to more than 400 job outlines on the Careers New Zealand website.
