What strengths should you be promoting on your resume? 

Welcome to the CareerCloud Resume Quiz

I'm Michael Gardon, operator of this site, host of the CareerCloud Podcast and creator at The Break - a newsletter all about "breaking work" to design a career path and work-life that works for you.

I'm one of those people who never had a calling, and didn't know what my "passion was", so I had to make my own path. My path ended up having many career pivots, 6 to be exact, all before I was 40 years old. I still don't feel like I know what I want to do when I grow up - I'm just interested in too many things!

Finding your right career starts with a good resume. That is where a Resume Quiz can be super helpful.

Taking The CareerCloud Resume Quiz

We partnered with our friends at Innate to create a scientifically based Resume Quiz that helps you find your top five strengths that you should be promoting on your resume.

During this assessment:

  • Read a statement

  • Select on a scale, how strongly you agree or disagree that the statement applies to you.

  • Make sure to read the question, then answer instinctively and honestly before moving on.

  • Upon finishing, you'll receive your assessment summary and breakdown of your resume strengths.

Experience the Innate Process


This assessment will ask you to rank how statements relate to you.


For best results, be yourself and answer honestly.


The assessment is meant to take less than 5 minutes to get results.

What You Get When Taking The Quiz

The quiz is designed to give you feedback on your top 5 key resume strengths and how professional resume writers recommend that you promote these strengths on your resume.

Studies have shown that the average time spent on resumes is 6-7 seconds! Yet, there's a good chance that your resume isn't expressing you and your story in the way that will make you stand out from the crowd of applicants.

Adding your strengths to your resume can help your resume stand out!


After you take the quiz, you will get a summary of your results. Here's a sample:
