ASVAB Career Exploration Program
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) Career Exploration Program is a career planning and exploration program that combines a multiple-aptitude test with an interest self-assessment and a wide range of career exploration tools.
The ASVAB Career Exploration Program consists of several components, which are available to participating schools in order to help students explore a wide variety of careers. These components include:
The ASVAB test covers eight areas including science, word knowledge, mathematics, and mechanical comprehension. It assesses a student’s ability to learn new skills and is a predictor of success in training and education programs. For more information on the ASVAB test, visit: http://www.asvabprogram.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=overview.test
The FYI is a 90-item interest inventory based on John Holland’s widely accepted theory of career choice. When students complete the FYI, they have three interest codes to use with the OCCU-Find for career exploration.

Career Exploration Tool
The OCCU-Find contains information about 400 + occupations sorted alphabetically, by interest code, and by career cluster providing students a variety of ways to identify occupations that will be satisfying. The online version links directly to O*NET and OOH job descriptions, and even the military career equivalents. Many of the occupations in the OCCU-Find feature career videos highlighting a-day-in-the-life glimpse at that occupation.
