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 school counselor, certification provides tools to help students choose a major and explore career options. For a career coach, certification delivers an additional tool for helping clients with professional development, employee engagement, and reintegration into the workplace. In addition, it can empower professionals to help students looking for enriching extracurricular activities and adults seeking to broaden their interests. 

Why become Strong certified?


The Strong Certification Program will enable you to:

  • Empower individuals to identify careers, jobs, and activities that closely align with their interests. 
  • Offer different perspectives on career direction, from general areas of interest to specific occupations.
  • Provide robust and reliable data about a person’s interests and work preferences.
  • Help organizations engage and retain employees by uncovering work areas in which their people are more likely to thrive.
