Counselors describe the CASI as a career checkup that surveys beliefs, events, and forces affecting an individual’s career as well as a way to identify influences or problems requiring further discussion and exploration.

The CASI provides a comprehensive inventory of a person’s current work situation that includes common attitudes and beliefs as well as strategies for coping with job, family, coworkers, and supervisors. This inventory assesses the likelihood of job stability and helps to clarify situations the individual may perceive as career obstacles. Potential uses include a general assessment of a company’s work environment, sources of worker dissatisfaction, degree of interpersonal abuse, etc.

The CASI is a time-saver for clinicians because it is self-administered, self-scored, profiled, and interpreted. It surveys nine aspects of career or work adaptation:

  1. Job Satisfaction
  2. Interpersonal Abuse
  3. Work Involvement
  4. Family Commitment
  5. Skill Development
  6. Risk-Taking Style
  7. Dominant Style
  8. Geographical Barriers
  9. Career Worries

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).

The CASI can be administered individually or within a group setting, and scored, and profiled in about 35 minutes. The Inventory Booklet contains 130 items. The CASI Manual describes the development of the instrument and discusses the typical characteristics of high and low scorers on each of the nine scales. Sixteen individual cases are profiled to illustrate the use of this instrument. Normative data and correlations with other career instruments are also presented. A self-test for test administrators is provided in the Appendix.

The CASI Kit includes the Manual and 25 each of the Inventory Booklets, Hand-Scorable Answer sheets and Your Interpretive Summary Booklets.
