The Strong is an assessment test available for you in the Career Engagement Center. It is based on the John Holland's occupational codes R I A S E C (Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising and Conventional). The Strong is an interest inventory that explores your level of interest in a wide range of familiar areas (i.e. occupations, occupational activities, hobbies, leisure activities, school subjects, and types of people). Strong scores measure your interests, not your abilities. It tells you about your pattern of interests and how your interests compare with those of people from a wide variety of occupations. The Strong is the most thorough career assessment, and gives very detailed results about career areas for you to explore.
