Career Services offers two different interest assessments to aid in major or career selection.
Strong Interest Inventory
This computerized inventory can assist you in making educational and occupational choices by relating your interests to a wide variety of career fields and to the interests of satisfied workers within those fields. The Strong can identify careers which most parallel your interests as well as careers which are contrary to your interests. This assessment can be completed in approximately 15-30 minutes and requires a follow-up appointment with Career Services. Fees may apply--see below for more details.
