The Career Cluster Interest Survey is a career guidance tool that allows you to select the activities you enjoy, identify your personal qualities, and select school subjects you prefer.

Normally, this survey takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete.

At the end of the survey, you will see a list of career clusters that are a good match for your interests.

For students from a Hawai'i public middle school or high school, the information will be used by your school for planning purposes.
