6. Loving your job.
One important aspect of choosing the right job is, loving what you are doing. Imagine, in 5-10 years, people ask you this question, “Do you like your job?” How would you answer? Would you complain about how tedious is it? or tell them about how everything is beautifully organized?
We will also help you decide your future career and your major based on the constraints that you are facing. Could paying from your own family pocket to do a Ph.D. be a wise decision, if you have a wife and a child? Can you choose to work in another city, if you need to commute for more than two hours? If someone has diabetes, would it be feasible for him or her to train to be a truck driver? Can you be a good artist if you are colorblind? As a rule of thumb, if you have dyslexia, then a math job or a designing job could be better for you. Are you a talkative man/ woman and you love helping people? Then teaching is definitely a good career choice for you. Possible constraints for your chosen career will be highlighted in our college major quiz.
8. Ability to survive.
One important aspect of choosing your dream job is your willingness to go out of your comfort zone. Are you willing to learn new things; would you able to find opportunities by responding to advertisements or through networks and/or cold calling?

9. Understanding downsides with the college major quiz.
Our quizzes will highlight the fact that every job comes with its own downsides. Being a pilot is a high profile job, but most pilots have their biological clocks altered because of lack of regular sleep patterns. A banker job is a secure 9-5 job; however, a small mistake can mean millions of dollars in loss.
10. Accommodating downsides.
Choosing the right job also means that you enjoy doing the tasks of this job, irrespective of its troubles. For example, if have chosen to be an archeologist, however, you do not like to get her your hands and clothes dirty. This might be a strong signal to concentrate on studying history or anthropology rather than practical archeology.
