About the Inventory

The Strong Interest Inventory reflects today's pattern of constant change in organizational settings. It provides a solid, dependable guide for individuals seeking a job change, a career change, or help with career development opportunities. The Strong Interest Inventory is one of the leading instruments of choice used by practitioners in helping individuals make informed decisions regarding their interests for jobs and careers.
