Discover the PossiblitiesOnce you know more about career paths that may be a good fit, you can begin to delve deeper into what those paths entail! What is the work like? Where do these people work? What is the growth in that sector? What level of education do you need for an entry-level position? What are typical job titles?
Knowing our interests, values, skills and personalities can be very helpful in choosing a major or a potential career path.
Focus 2 is a great tool to help you explore different majors and occupations that may be a great fit. It is free to use but we suggest making an appointment to meet with a coach to interpret your results. This is a free service.
The Strong Interest Inventory® assessment provides robust insight into a person’s interests, so you can help them to consider potential careers, their educational path and the world of work. Built on psychologist John Holland’s theory, it’s backed by more than 80 years of research into how people of similar interests are employed, and what motivates individuals in the workplace. It delivers effective and powerful results that contribute to your students’ success. This is free for students but it is a paid service for alumni. Please contact the CIC for more information.
