What if you could use personality and interest data to predict how satisfied you’re likely to be in a certain major, or later in a particular career?

The new Strong Interest Inventory® 244 assessment and accompanying report gives users powerful new tools to explore potential academic and career pathways. But why measure vocational interests to begin with? Measuring interests can help people:

Really, it’s about helping people make better, more informed career decisions. This career assessment isn’t just for young people looking at the world of work for the first time. It can also help people who’re in a career transition (either chosen or because of a layoff or termination), or who’re currently disengaged in their present careers, or people who are looking to transition to retirement and wondering where else they could possibly contribute.

The Strong 244 assessment is a new version of the well-known Strong Interest Inventory career assessment that’s been designed to be more inclusive and insightful for individuals exploring career pathways. With scores comparing your interests to a database of information, users can see potential satisfaction scores for 33 academic majors and 243 occupations (up from 130 occupations) in the Strong 244 Career Satisfaction Report.

In addition, the Strong 244 assessment doesn’t require gender for input or in the scoring and interpretation of results, making it more inclusive to all gender identities.

Shorter in length, the Strong 244 assessment also includes an improved consistency index (which detects inconsistent and atypical responses) and a myriad of updated occupations such as hospitality & tourism, and conservation & environmentalism.
