Strong Interest Inventory

The Strong is an inventory of interests. The results of the Strong can be used to help you understand work related interests. The Strong is not a test of abilities. It will not tell you what you are good at or where your talents lie. The Strong can help with information regarding careers that reflect your interests, possible education programs, work environments you might find satisfying, and activities you might enjoy in your free time. 

The Strong is taken in conjunction with an appointment with a Career Centre staff person, who is trained to interpret the assessment and work with students to connect the results with academic and career goals.

The 2017-2018 fee to complete the Strong is $30.00. Strong Interest request forms can be downloaded or picked up at the Student Career Centre, 194 Schwartz.
