As discussed at the College Kick-Off in August, in an effort to help you explore your major and career options and opportunities, Philadelphia Futures will be working with each of our collegians this year to identify and understand your strengths and interests through the Strong Interest Inventory, a well-researched career planning tool. Taking the Strong Interest Inventory can strengthen your academic wellness by helping you to refine your career goals.
Watch this video to learn more about the Strong Interest Inventory:
The Strong Interest Inventory relies on John Holland’s psychology-based codes, known as themes, to identify your interest areas and strengths to recommend possible majors and career fields.
We are excited to be offering this great resource and we are confident that you will find it helpful!
Completing the assessment is a requirement for Philadelphia Futures collegians who graduated from high school between 2012 and 2014. Collegians graduating before 2011 are encouraged, but not required, to complete the assessment. Our first-year students took the iStartStrong inventory during senior seminar so they are not required to complete the Strong Interest Inventory.
At our Annual Conference on January 9, the workshop session for upperclass collegians will focus on understanding the results of the inventory. We will also be focusing some of our discussion at our consultation meetings on helping students understand their specific results.
Instructions for completing the Inventory, including login and password info, can be found in the recent email from Director of College Retention and Success, Christina Santos. It should take you approximately 30 minutes. Access the assessment at: https://online.cpp.com.
