I definitely can see many college students benefiting from the program. This type of career interest exploration is much more interactive than filling in bubbles: It causes you to truly examine a career path from all important angles. (V.L., college freshman)

I believe the GCI is an essential tool for all students, both undergraduate and graduate, to evaluate and discover where their real passion resides. I have participated in similar assessments, and have been left wanting. The GCI . . . enables the counselor to evaluate each person individually, rather than with a “one-size-fits-most” approach. The Discover Your Passion consult is enlightening! (S.M., nontraditional student)

The GCI for Universities, Colleges, and Schools

It is as if a river that had run to waste in sluggish side-streams and marshes suddenly found its way back to its proper bed, or as if a stone lying on a germinating seed were lifted away so that the shoot could begin its natural growth. —C. G. Jung

Before and After

Before the GCI: I have some understanding of what gifts I have, but I do not have any idea how they could help in guiding my career direction. I think a clearer understanding of my gifts and a career direction would be helpful.
After: I believe that my goals are more clear to me now. Before, I had little idea of what my gifts were and how they correlated with the future I have planned for myself. I now know what steps to take next. (S.W., college sophomore)

Before the GCI: As of right now, I am certain of the career path I want to follow: working in an administrative position in the healthcare field. As for "gifts", I suppose I'm unsure as to what would qualify as a gift that I may possess that might enable me to excel in this field.
After: I still plan on majoring in Healthcare Administration, but I am contemplating minoring in something that might engage my creative side . . . I am aware that there is a chance that if I do not engage my more creative nature, I may find work tedious after awhile. (K.S., college junior)
