Provide career direction

 

Strong Interest Inventory® certification enables you to provide your clients, students or employees with dynamic career direction and insight into options that align with their interests and abilities. For a career counselor, certification provides tools to help students choose a major, explore career options – even select enriching extracurricular activities. For a career coach or human resources professional, certification delivers an additional tool for helping individuals with professional development, engagement, transition, and retention. It can also be a powerful tool for adults transitioning to retirement – a way to explore possibilities related to leisure pursuits or volunteer opportunities.
