Explore Your Interests

Unsure if you’re on the right career path? Trying to choose a major?

Online Career Interest Assessment

The Strong Interest Inventory® an online career assessment, can help you discover potential careers based on your unique interests. You must meet with your Career Consultant prior to taking the assessment to discuss their appropriateness and potential value to your situation.

At the discretion of the Career Consultant, students may take the assessment, which takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.

The Assessment

The Strong Interest Inventory, which takes about 30-45 minutes to complete, compares your interests with those of people who are satisfied in their occupations. The underlying premise of the Strong is that if you share many common interests with persons in a certain occupation, then you too are more likely to enjoy that type of work as well.

Interpretation and planning

Your Career Consultant will meet with you one-on-one to review and discuss the results. You can then explore the occupational suggestions provided by the assessment and plan further steps.
