Find your Career Cluster

Join the movement and find your purpose with the Career Clusters 

Do you know where you fit?

Thinking about your career as a series of static jobs is a thing of the past. It’s time to move on, and learn about your strengths, skills, and values, so you can work out a pathway that’s right for you. 

There are six Career Clusters, and within each Cluster you’ll find people who share a set of tasks, core technical and transferable skills, work environments, and common outcomes. You’ll also find people from each Cluster in every industry, which means you can find a pathway that’s right for you in an area you are interested in. 

Right now, the quiz is in beta, and we’re asking people to share their career journey with us and take the quiz to help us build a knowledge base. Click below to find out how it works. 

The six Career Clusters

Which ones resonate with you?


Makers create and maintain the places where we live and work. They grow crops, build homes, repair vehicles, and keep the power on


Linkers help us find, choose, secure, and use things. They can help us with products and physical items, or with the services and support we need


Innovators design, engineer, and manufacture things we use in all areas of our lives, from the clothes we wear, to the food we eat, the homes we live in and the roads we drive on


Coordinators are the people who plan, prepare, and administer our events, systems and economy. They play a vital role in making sure everything runs smoothly


Guardians protect our mental and physical wellbeing. They help us care for our health, and guard against illness and injury


Informers advise, teach, and guide us so we can manage our legal, social, and financial responsibilities, and participate in society
