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.
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.
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."

Kirsten was fantastic to work with through every step of the daunting task of searching for a college for our son. Her combination of expertise, positivity, and integrity was exactly what was needed. My son felt very comfortable working with her, and he believed that she genuinely cared about what he wanted in a college and what his goals were for the future. She seemed to work tirelessly to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information necessary to navigate the labyrinth of the college application process. Even after applications were finished and acceptances and decision were made, she continued to provide useful information and insight. This has been especially valuable while dealing with the uncertainty during the Coronavirus pandemic. We wouldn't hesitate to work with her again, and we would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a thorough, honest, and supportive college specialist. We can't imagine having done this without her!
