HawkQuest - the career and major exploration quiz for jayhawks


HawkQuest is a brief, informal quiz specifically for KU students (or potential KU students!) to help you learn about yourself and start thinking about careers and the majors that may assist you in developing the necessary skills to be marketable in those careers after you graduate.

The quiz includes skill-based action statements that represent actions you may or may not be interested in performing regularly in a future career. It should take you less than half an hour to complete, and your results will be presented when you are finished and will also be emailed to you. View HawkQuest results sample.
