ASVAB INFORMATION:

Your decision to enter college, technical or vocational school, military service or the civilian world of work after high school is an important one.  The ASVAB Career Exploration Program can help.

The ASVAB Career Exploration Program includes eight individual tests covering verbal and math skills, mechanical knowledge, electronics, and several other areas.  It also produces three Career Exploration Scores for Verbal Skills, Math Skills, and Science and Technical Skills.  These three scores serve as one of several pieces of information about yourself that can aid in the exploration of a wide variety of career options.

The ASVAB is offered at no cost and no obligation to high school students. You can use the ASVAB results to explore the ASVAB Career Exploration Program in one of two ways. You can navigate the Program using Exploring Careers: The ASVAB Career Exploration Guide or www.asvabprogram.com.

Every student who takes the ASVAB receives a copy of the Guide and an individual access code that serves as an all-access pass to the tools available online. You can choose the route that works best. Both avenues contain an interest inventory, the FYI, which will help you identify your work-related interests. The Guide and the Program Web site also include career information on 400+ occupations available in the OCCU-Find.

After the test, you take the FYI and using your ASVAB scores along with your interest codes you can explore the variety of occupations presented in the OCCUFind in order to consider whether your skills and interests match the demands of occupations that appeal to you.

Research has shown that students who participate in the ASVAB Program experience less career indecision, enjoy greater confidence in making career decisions, and consider more thoughtfully their options than do students who do not participate in the ASVAB Program.
