What do I want to be when I'm older?

Use the interactive tools on this page and the links to useful websites to start your research.

On this page we have two interactive tools to help you get a better idea of the career you might want to look into.

  • The Skillsometer will help you discover what you might like to do in the future
  • The Careerometer allows you to compare the salary and working hours etc of different jobs

Ready? Let’s have a go.


Skillsometer can help you discover what jobs you might like to do in the future. You will be presented with a series of statements. Select the emoji that shows how you feel about each statement. You will be given suggestions of jobs linked to what you most enjoy doing.


Use the Careerometer to compare different jobs — salary, working hours, etc.

Click the dotted square. Type in the first career that you think you might be interested in and select from the drop-down list, then add your second and third choice to see the comparison.

Widgets provided by LMI for all.
