The Strong Interest Inventory is the most widely used career assessment tool available. It can be used to determine what your basic interests are, what career fields would interest you and what specific jobs you are most likely to be interested in. It is a great tool when you are starting out or when you are contemplating changing careers.
To complete the Strong Interest Inventory you will be required to sign into a secure system and answer a series of 291 questions. These questions use a Likert scale ranging from :strongly like” to “strongly dislike”. All Strong Interest Reports are $75. They are emailed directly to you once the results are calculated and you will have up to one hour to go over the results with a trained specialist in this tool to interpret the results.
