Interest Assessments

Our goal at San Diego Continuing Education is to help guide you into a career that matches your interests so that you want to get up and go to work each morning!  We believe you should do what you like...like what you do!

Interest inventories are NOT tests.  And they will not tell you what you like.  YOU tell the inventory what you like, and it helps relate those interests to the world of work.  The more accurate your responses are, the more accurate the results will be!
