The CEI-EZ is the perfect interest inventory if you have limited administration time or work with individuals who need an easy-to-read format.
Like the best-selling Career Exploration Inventory (CEI), the CEI-EZ guides students and job seekers in exploring and planning three major areas of life: work, leisure activities, and learning. But the CEI-EZ has fewer items and five steps, making the benefits of the CEI accessible to everyone.
With the CEI-EZ, individuals reflect on 96 activities and consider their past, present, and future interest in them. Scores connect to 16 career interest areas based on the U.S. Department of Education career clusters. Related jobs, education and training options, and leisure activities are listed for each interest area. An action plan helps individuals focus on their top interest areas and consider short- and long-range goals.
In a survey of 956 individuals who completed this assessment online,
Select the format that works best for your clients' or students’ needs. The print version is ideal for in-person meetings and workshops and can be a helpful reference tool during one-on-one discussions.
The online version offers automated scoring and allows individuals to complete the assessment at home at their convenience. Results are immediately saved and provided to administrators. This option is ideal for serving or advising individuals who are unable to meet face-to-face.
