Choosing the right career is important for three reasons: personal satisfaction, life direction and financial security. The problem becomes one of matching personal skills, interests and goals with the requirements demanded by a given field of work. Afterward, a practical course can be plotted to prepare for job readiness in that field. The following chart lists 25 occupational characteristics and requirements in relation to 282 occupations chosen from the 1974-75 Occupational Outlook Handbook. The chart is designed as an exploratory tool in matching personal traits interests, capacities, abilities, tastes, preferences and educational qualifications with those usually associated with an occupation or group of occupations.
