Strong Interest Inventory

By giving students insight into their interests, preferences, and personal styles, the Strong enables them to identify specific courses, jobs, internships, and activities they’re likely to enjoy. And that can greatly increase the likelihood that they’ll stay in school and ultimately graduate. While the Strong is backed by unparalleled reliability and validity, it’s also easy to use. It guides career counselors and educators through a process of comparing their students’ results with those of people like them who have already found satisfying careers. It also generates a list of the top 10 occupations students are most likely to find rewarding. (

Currently, the on-line version is under construction for use by Berea students. If you wish to learn more about the assessment, please see James Atkinson in Career Development.

A code (typically three letters) is given upon completion of the assessment and is part of the RIASEC model below.
