It’s easy to understand and provides a solid foundation for informed and realistic career planning.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I used the SDS for over 30 years for career exploration with college students in higher ed settings and with experienced professionals dealing with career transition challenges in the corporate sector.

I retired four years ago and recently started to work with high school juniors and seniors beginning to explore colleges, majors, and occupational options.

I was pleased to see the SDS still offers the same benefits to its users and at a very reasonable cost.
