Testimonial

"Kirsten was wonderful to work with and extremely helpful - for both myself and my daughter Shania. The entire college application process can seem very daunting - especially when you first get started. Kirsten took Shania (and me) through each stage, from beginning to end. She also offered her perspective and advice on which colleges might be the best fit for Shania, based on her personality, talents and strengths, as well as our financial resources. Having access to her website was also extremely helpful when Shania was considering different colleges. I would recommend Kirsten to any parent and high school student as they begin the college research and application journey."

Career Exploration via the Strong Interest Inventory®

The Strong Interest Inventory measures six broad interest patterns that can be used to describe work personality. These themes link to clusters of interest. Work activities, potential skills, and values can also be classified into these six themes. Taken together, these provide a link between the student’s emerging interests and the career and education possibilities likely to be most meaningful to them.

'Strong' results provide teens objective, positive information for and about them, and help students answer the questions:
  • Who am I?
  • What do I want to do?
  • Where do I want to do it?
  • Why do I want to do it?
The results are both immediate and long-term:
  • Guidance for college and college major selection
  • A process (and tools) for exploring career options well into the future
  • Confidence gained from increased self-knowledge and the ability to articulate that – confidence that can be brought to the college application & essay writing process, internships, and employment opportunities

Here is a sample of the Strong Interest Inventory® Report, with attached College Profile.

After the student takes the Inventory I guide them through the results. Together, we consider how to apply the findings to decisions about college, college majors, and potential career paths.

Though few students entering college have made a definite choice of either major or occupation the Strong Interest Inventory helps point them toward rewarding college/career experiences.

$150.00 fee includes the cost of administering the test, related materials, and one ~60 minute session with the student/family.

More about the Strong Interest Inventory®

The Strong Interest Inventory® is considered the standard of excellence in career assessments. It is based on decades of research and has been proven both valid and reliable. The Strong is considered a "restricted" psychological assessment, and as such, practitioners must be "Strong Certified" and typically hold a Masters degree in Psychology or a related field.

"The Strong Interest Inventory's qualitative features... and its psychometric characteristics continue to distinguish this instrument as a standard of excellence... for vocational interest inventories... Career counselors, psychologists, and others using the Strong will find they have an instrument that is methodologically sophisticated and that will provide clients with much information to ponder along with the resources with which to make reasoned career decisions."
