boston college career center

The Boston College Career Center offers a range of tools to help you examine your skills, interests, and values, and make decisions about which careers are right for you.


This online tool will help you identify your strengths and skills. After you complete the inventory, we strongly recommend that you make an appointment with a BC career counselor to discuss your results. Ready to get started? Take the SkillScan assessment now (you will need a BC email address to register).

Strong Interest Inventory

Strong Interest Inventory

This online instrument provides a detailed summary of your interests, together with a list of careers you might want to explore. You can take the assessment online, but you’ll need to meet with a BC career counselor for an hour to get your results. The assessment, which is free, is available only to Boston College students, and alumni who have graduated in the past five years.

To take the Strong Interest Inventory, log into EagleLink and select Skills Assessments under the Resources options.
