Help With Career Decisions

VA Counseling Session

The CAI is an occupational interest inventory for both college bound and non-college career minded individuals. The CAI compares your occupational interests to professionals in 111 specific careers in today's workforce. In addition the CAI uses occupational scales to match your likes and dislikes to those of people who have been satisfactorily employed in an occupation for a number of years.

The inventory can help you develop career and study plans and offers career development advice. 

The CAI can be self, group, or individually administered. In addition, the education center personnel may administer the inventory in paper form or online, which is strongly encouraged.

Next Step:
If you are interested in taking the CAI or would like more information, be sure to contact you local education services or Navy College office.
