FIND COLLEGE MAJORS THAT MATCH YOUR INTERESTS
In 30 minutes!
Do you know what you want to be when you grow up?
When you were a kid you had dreams. You wanted to be an astronaut or an acrobat or an inventor of something awesome!
As you got older, your interests & passions changed & you discovered new things you love to do.
But you have no clue how those interests or passions could actually translate into a real career.
On top of that there may be a choir of outside voices (or even an “inside” voice) that want to tell you what you “should” be.
And those voices are hard to ignore - especially if you don't really know yourself .
And the sad thing is,
If you don't know yourself, or what the best career options are for you, the chances of ending up in the dark...
😟 uncertain about what work you might love or...
😣 with a degree you don't know what to do with, are pretty high.
Well, the Strong Interest Inventory is here to help!
It’s a career assessment that helps you explore career paths that are the best fit for you.
And this knowledge is powerful because if you know:

If you fail to think about your interests before you choose your major, YOU RISK:
- Switching majors often and taking longer (and paying more) to graduate.
- Or worse, ending up with a degree you don’t know what to do with or can’t earn a living with, or a job that feels dreary, drab, and soulless.
Don’t head off to college without some self-exploration.
- Be clear on what inspires and motivates you.
- Find careers you’ll love that can also pay the bills
- Be confident that you’re headed in the right direction and making the most of your time in school.
