Vocational Interest Tests

Question:
I know a college degree will improve my future, but I have no idea what to major in or even what I'd be good at. Can you offer any help?

Answer:
Most colleges and universities (including National University) offer tests through their career centers to help you find your strengths and the careers that fit them. You may find that your skills translate readily into a career you've never thought of. Or you may also pinpoint the skills you need to gain to make your dream career a reality.

The Newly Revised Strong Interest Inventory is the most respected and widely used career planning instrument in the world, and is constantly updated to reflect the changing employment outlook. The test includes 30 Basic Interest Scales that focus on technology, finance and investing, marketing, entrepreneurship and more. The test will also identify what type of thinker, learner, leader, risk-taker and team player you are and use the findings to pinpoint careers you'd likely excel in.
