More about CareerScope

An interest inventory helps to target key areas of interest. The Interest Inventory measures and identifies a user’s attraction to careers that correspond to twelve Interest Areas. These areas include:

  • Artistic
  • Plants/Animals Mechanical
  • Business
  • Detail
  • Accommodating
  • Lead/Influence
  • Scientific
  • Protective
  • Industrial
  • Selling
  • Humanitarian
  • Physical Performing

The results from the Interest Inventory are compiled into a comprehensive Individual Profile Analysis (IPA) that objectively identifies each student’s most significant interest area preferences. This reporting system includes Assessment Profile and Summary Reports tied to GOE/DOT, O*NET, and U.S. Department of Education’s Career Cluster/Pathway System.
