The Right Questions … Answer them to reach your ‘Best Fit’ career choices


My favorite quote from Einstein:

“If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask… for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.

The importance of asking the ‘right questions’ to discovery is a fact. Let’s look at some questions which have shaped our understanding of the world:-


  • Newton: “Why does an apple fall from a tree but, why does the moon not fall into the Earth?”
  • Darwin: “Why do the Galapagos Islands have so many species not found elsewhere?”
  • Einstein: “What would the universe look like if I rode through it on a beam of light?


On an average an Adult will spend at least 8 hours, 5 days a week doing their job. The most important part of our lives will be spent at work. Which type of job you choose will determine how happy and successful you will be. It will also impact the type of friends you will have and lifestyle you will lead.

In our quest for our ‘Best Fit’ career choices, we need to answer the question ‘Who am I ‘. The answers could be

  • I am a student of History
  • I am a happy go lucky person
  • Becoming rich makes me feel successful
  • I am a Realist and enjoy working in routine tasks


Each of the above is a valid answer to the question ‘Who am I ‘.

Your career should take into account each of these definitions which are statements about your Temperament, Behaviour, Aptitude, Education and Interests. Choose the career which best satisfies the definition of ‘YOU’

Through CareerGraph@ Pexiscore ( ) we want to take you through the right questions, which will objectively measure and create the framework of your Strengths, Interests and Competencies. It will remove any bias and self-judgement that otherwise may cloud your perceptions of ‘YOU’. The outcome is an objective summary of

  • YOU as per your Temperament
  • YOU as per your Work related Behaviour patterns
  • YOU as per your Aptitude
  • YOU as per your Industry interests
  • YOU as per you Education
  • Recommendations – on Job Roles you will fit the Best .


These inputs should enable you and your well-wishers to set ‘Goals’ and decide on a ‘Plan Of Action’ to achieve these Career Goals

The job world today has many options and opportunities. Infact, some of the lesser known areas of work – for example Analytics, Data Science , Big Data , Animation and Gamification – are becoming very large areas of new jobs being created. These ‘new areas of work’ may not even have been there a decade or two earlier. Identify those roles where the ‘chances of success’ are maximum and then go after it. That is the sure shot path to career success in this century.

How are we, at Career Graph , so confident that our service is robust ? Our journey in the Job Fitment space started with the creation of PexiScore ( ) . Over the years we have accumulated data about jobs and candidates who fit these jobs. We have taken the data and worked out the CareerGraph model – as an offering for Fresher’s and College students.
