The average person spends close to 100,000 hours during their lifetime working. I wanted to create a simple way to identify satisfying career options based on personal characteristics.
What it does
career link matches careers to a simple personality profile. It does this by taking characteristics from over 1000 occupations and compares them to the characteristics you've specified.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Filling out the career database required some career classification and normalization that was a little complex.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The app satisfies the original objective. You can quickly narrow your career choices.
What I learned
Information to select a satisfying career is publicly available. It just needed to be presented in an easy-to-use form.
What's next for career link
Career selection mapped directly to a broader set of genomic data (more user data needed). Map careers to local job opportunities.
