At the most general level, career counseling involves learning about oneself and the world of work. Typically, learning about oneself in this context means obtaining information about one's interests, needs, and abilities. Interest inventory assessments such as the Strong Interest Inventory offer several advantages over other methods of data gathering, it is incorporated into all major approaches to career counseling as an integral component of the client's self-exploration. By far the most common use of the Strong is to help people make educational and occupational choices. People must make decisions about the course of their lives. Because choices about educational major and eventual occupation may have more impact on peoples' lives than any other decisions they make, these choices should be well-informed.
Paladin Associates have years of success using the Strong and applying it to individual needs. We urge anyone making career or educational decisions to take the assessment.
The Strong Interest Inventory® Indicator
The Strong Interest Inventory® (SII) assessment will provide individuals with information about themselves and their relationship to the working world; information that will lead to greater self-understanding and to better decisions about the course of their lives. It also provides people, who must make decisions about others (e.g., counselors, teachers, administrators and supervisors), with information and strategies so that decisions these people make are ones that consider the unique qualities on each individual.
