Frequently Asked Questions

What is Your 🔥 Job?

Produced by the editors of TIME for Kids, Your 🔥 Job is a free digital platform that introduces kids ages 8 to 14 to the ever-expanding world of careers. Using videos, articles, a research-backed skills assessment, and more, the platform invites kids to consider the many paths to a future of meaningful work. Our most critical mission is to show all students that there’s no single route to success, and that anything is possible. 

Who uses Your 🔥 Job?

The platform is designed for kids ages 8 to 14, as well as their parents/caregivers and educators. 

Is Your 🔥 Job really free?

Yes! Your 🔥 Job is free for all, thanks to funding provided by the PwC Charitable Foundation.

What is the Skills Explorer, and how does it work?

We suggest users begin their Your 🔥 Job journey by completing the Skills Explorer. It’s a research-backed, 36-question quiz that helps kids explore their talents and interests. Once a student completes the Skills Explorer, the content they see on the site will be tailored to their unique results. 

Is Your 🔥 Job standards-aligned?

Yes. Our materials align to Common Core, CASEL, and 21st Century standards. In addition, we align all plans with the greater 16 clusters included in the Common Career Technical Core standards. Learn more by downloading our Educator’s Guide.
