Work Values Matcher (CareerOneStop)

Discover your work values to choose a career that’s meaningful to you.

The Work Values Matcher is a quick card sort exercise that asks you to rank statements to define your ideal job. Your choices indicate your top values.

Work values are our beliefs about what’s most important in our work. For one person, it may be helping others, while for others it may be career advancement, or working independently.

Knowing your work values can help you:

  • Choose a career that matches your values, and
  • Identify employers that share similar values

In this quick card sort you’ll rank 20 statements about your ideal job to see:

  • How your choices relate to the six core work values
  • Careers that match your personal work values
  • How to identify a workplace that fits your values

The Work Values Matcher is based on the O*NET® Work Importance Locator™.
