About This Quiz

Not everyone was built to punch a time clock or thrive in a cubicle farm! For some of us, there's nothing more soul-sucking than being chained to a desk for eight or more hours a day. Inside many of us lies an artistic spirit that needs freedom from structure, and the ability to let our imaginations soar. Feeling caged does not lead well to the personal expression that most artistic souls crave. 

A lot of society likes to think of the more creative among us as being lazy or lost in a dream world. Nothing could be farther from the truth! People with creative souls are very dedicated individuals. They simply are not driven primarily by the almighty dollar. They work for the sake of love and they are very driven by their own way of seeing the world.

What is a free spirit supposed to do in a world so driven by time and monetary gain? Well, we think we can match your artistic spirit with a job that wouldn't make you feel like you were a cog in a giant machine. Tell us about yourself and about the things you dream of having in a job. From there, we will find the job that would enrich, rather than crush your spirit!
