Career and interest inventories are types of psychometric assessments used to measure a person's interests in different occupational areas. Most often interest inventories are used in career analysis to assist in finding areas where an individual has strong interests and therefore is more likely to enjoy the work.

Interest Inventories answer questions like:Interest Inventories can help us look at our interests and how they may lead us to new career directions

“What are they interested in?”


“Where do their interests coincide with interests of those already in the profession?”


“Do they have a gap between their interest and skill in a career?”


"Are there interests that they have that could be turned into possible careers?"

Interest inventories can be used alongside or combined with personality assessments to give people a strong indication of the types of careers they would “fit” well with. 

Career interests can be used alongside skills assessments to ascertain where an individual may want to explore different careers and uncover potential training needs.

Strong and MBTI Career Report (60 minutes, untimed)

The purpose of the report is to help individuals better understand themselves and expand their career options.  Both instruments provide information that can be used to better understand the connection between their interests, preferences and work environment.

The Strong matches your interests with six types of work environments and the MBTI assessment describes your personality type and matches it with types of work. Together the assessments give detailed information on the types of career fields and occupations that might suit a person based on their interests and personality type.

Campbell's Interest and Skill Survey (35 minutes, untimed)

This is a self report measure of skills and interests which can assist individuals to identify different occupations that may be of interest.  By measuring both skills and interest the tool can give an indication of areas that are good to pursue (high interest, high ability), avoid (low interest, low ability), explore (low interest, high ability), or develop (high interest, low ability).
