Career Exploration finding your way

Changing Careers?

Re-Entering the Workforce?

Perhaps you’ve been stuck in a career that you don’t love.

Maybe you’ve been out of the workforce for awhile – or you’ve recently lost your job.

Career Puppy and the Strong Interest Inventory can help.

Since its beginnings, Career Puppy has assisted adult job seekers in finding career satisfaction.

Through the Strong Interest Inventory – an assessment that demonstrates what you’d be good at and therefore enjoy – you will understand exactly what type of careers you’ll excel in.


The Strong Interest Inventory, built on psychologist John Holland’s theory, is backed by more than 80 years of research and interviews to discover how people of similar interests are employed, and what motivates individuals in the workplace.

Career explorers who take the assessment will receive detailed results that reveal your interests and show how those interests map to six broad themes:

  • Realistic
  • Investigative
  • Artistic
  • Social
  • Enterprising
  • Conventional

These themes are broken into 30 specific areas of interest that can be directly related to fields of study, careers, and leisure activities.


Your top 5 or 10 most compatible occupations will be identified. Links to each Career Profile make this a great starting point for in-depth exploration. Career Profiles include detailed descriptions that discuss educational requirements, forecasted salary, typical preparation, values, skills and much more.

With our exclusive RIASEC Radar, you’ll be able to see at a glance if your interests are closely aligned with the interests of most people in that career who are happy and fulfilled with their job.


We also provide a career exploration guidebook for you, and we'll send some non-nagging email nudges to help you get the most from your experience.


 For a one-time payment of $57, you will enjoy unlimited access to Career Puppy. Your assessment results will always be available in your dashboard. You can explore careers and save your favorites for additional research.

It's an investment towards a happy future.
