What is The Interest Explorer?
The Interest Explorer is a career guidance and counseling instrument designed to help high school students make wise educational and career-planning decisions about their futures. Specifically, it provides information about students' interests in 14 career areas that are directly linked to the most recent publications of the Department of Labor, including the Guide for Occupational Exploration (GOE). Using the GOE's system of organization, the career areas defined by the Interest Explorer were formed on the basis of similarity of work activities and educational requirements.
