The Career Attitudes and Strategies Inventory (CASI) is a 130-item career “check-up” that surveys beliefs, events, and forces affecting an individual's career and identifies influences or problems requiring further discussion and exploration.
In individual or group settings, the instrument helps to identify and clarify career problems and stimulates constructive discussion of these areas. Potential uses include a general assessment of a company's work environment, sources of worker dissatisfaction, degree of interpersonal abuse, etc.
This inventory assesses the likelihood of job stability and helps to clarify situations the individual may perceive as career obstacles.
The CASI is a self-administered, self-scored, profiled, and interpreted. It surveys nine aspects of career or work adaptation:
These scales provide a brief survey of attitudes, barriers, experiences, or strategies that may merit further exploration.
In addition to the nine CASI scales, a special section on the answer sheet allows clients to check specific areas of concern from a list of 21 potential career obstacles (e.g., health or emotional problems, financial worries, education).
