ASVAB Career Exploration Program — Program At-a-Glance
The ASVAB Career Exploration Program provides high-quality, career exploration and planning materials at no cost to high schools throughout the country. The Program encourages students to explore a wide variety of careers, rather than limiting their exploration by telling them what they can or should do. Schools receive a comprehensive career development program that meets the needs of today’s students, based on current career development theory and practice.
What are the Main Components?
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.
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.
