The COVE Career Center Know Your Story


Have you ever wondered why you are drawn to a particular major, why you do better in certain group projects or why you might like cheesy movies, technology or classical literature?

When you understand the things that naturally drive you, your story comes more clearly into focus -- making you more assured in the decisions you make, more confident when functioning as part of a group, and better equipped to focus on choosing an internship or career.  The COVE Career Center has resources available to get you started.

The Strong Interest Inventory assessment is one of the world's most widely respected and frequently used career planning tools. 

This tool provides insight by aligning your interests with professionals in specific occupations who share the same interests as you! This allows you to explore good-fit careers, your educational path, and what a healthy work-life balance looks like for you.

Who should take this assessment?

For accurate and helpful results, we recommend that you have at least one job or experiences that could refine your interests (internships and summer jobs qualify).  Thus, sophomores, juniors and seniors are typically good candidates for this tool.
