The Strong Interest Inventory

More and more clients have been asking us for guidance in identifying careers that suit their strengths, preferences and abilities. In order to respond to this request and in our passion to help our clients find careers they love, we now propose the Strong Interest Inventory.

What is the Strong Inventory?

The Strong Interest Inventory assessment is one of the world’s most respected and widely used career planning tools. It provides robust insights into a person’s career interests. It helps them discover potential careers they may not have considered and gives them a wealth of information about how they approach the world of work.

It is 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. A recent survey reported that 80% of organizations saw improvement in their ability to help people choose the right career direction after implementing the Strong assessment. It delivers effective and powerful results that contribute to people’ success.


What does the Strong Inventory measure?

The Strong measures your client’s interest in a broad range of occupations, work activities, leisure activities, and school subjects. The questionnaire compares how these interests are similar to the interests of people successfully employed in those occupations. It is used to help people understand their work interests and to illustrate the kinds of work in which they might be most satisfied.

What does the Strong Inventory looks like?

The Strong Interest Inventory assessment helps individuals identify their work personality by exploring their interests in six broad areas: realistic, artistic, investigative, social, enterprising, and conventional (often referred to using the acronym RIASEC). ). It then breaks the RIASEC areas into 30 specific areas of interest that can be directly related to fields of study, careers, and leisure activities. In addition, it describes an individual’s personal style preferences in five areas: work style, learning environment, team orientation, leadership style, and risk taking. It ranks the individual’s top 5 or 10 most compatible occupations.



The Strong Interest Inventory assessment continues to be the leading choice for career practitioners in helping people in their search for rich and fulfilling careers.
