CAI compares an individual's vocational interests to 90+ specific careers that reflect a range of positions in today's workforce – including skilled trades and technical and service professions – that require 2 years or less of post-secondary training.
CAI has been updated to provide additional occupations, new suggested readings, new vocational codes, and career resources on the web.
Profile reports provide a graphical depiction of the individual's score on each scale, a list of occupations to investigate, and a page of career resources. Interpretive reports present several pages of graphs and narrative statements that explain the significant score elevations on each scale.
The following resources are available for CAI.
