The Campbell™ Interest and Skill Survey® (CISS®) inventory helps assess an individual's interest in occupational areas and presents a comparison to people who are happily and successfully employed in those fields. Unlike traditional interest inventories, this tool also provides an estimate of the individual's confidence in his or her ability to perform various occupational activities.

Users and Applications

Counsellors, psychologists, and human resource professionals in mental health, business, and educational settings can use the CISS survey to help:

  • Explore new avenues in career development for clients
  • Pinpoint areas of academic study that can build skills and increase career options for clients
  • Support personal counselling by identifying occupations or vocations that may meet the individual's needs
  • Advise displaced and transitioning employees in outplacement programs

Features and Benefits

  • The interest scales and parallel skill scales help individuals gain a more thorough understanding of suitable career options.
  • The survey uses easily understood, contemporary terms.
  • Test items reflect a respect for individuals of different gender, race, religion, and national origin.
  • Combined gender scales allow for the broadest interpretation of survey results.
  • Remote-On Screen Administration (R-OSA) capability—assessments can be emailed to clients so that the assessment can be completed at their own location.
  • The CISS Career Planner leads individuals through a thoughtful analysis of their results and helps them translate those results into specific actions. This tool helps individuals:
    • Explore 299 additional occupations and 159 fields of study
    • Analyze work and education as they relate to the person's values and priorities
    • Identify motivators and obstacles regarding the individual's career goals
