Strong Interest Inventory
Recommended for students who have completed a minimum of 30 credit hours.
The Strong Interest Inventory instrument is based on the idea that individuals are more satisfied and productive when they work in jobs that they find interesting and when they work with people whose interests are similar to their own. The Strong Interest Inventory instrument takes about 30 minutes to complete and contains 291 items that measure your interests in a wide range of occupations, occupational activities, hobbies, leisure activities and types of people. The newly revised assessment includes jobs in the fast-growing market of computer hardware and electronics, marketing and advertising, finance and accounting along with traditional jobs. Your interests are compared to thousands of individuals who report being happy and successful in their jobs. Your personalized report identifies your optimum career choices based on your interests and includes additional related occupations with concise job descriptions.
The Strong Interest Inventory will not tell you what major you should choose but will help you sort out your interests and give career ideas. Once the inventory is taken you will need to schedule an appointment with one of our career counselors to receive your results. This appointment will take approximately one hour so make sure you plan your appointment accordingly.
