What is SIGI3?
SIGI3 helps students and other job seekers create a career plan that’s right for them.

SIGI3 is a highly interactive career assessment tool that is designed to help you make informed and rational decisions about your
field of study and career. SIGI3 can help you assess your work-related values, interests, and skills. SIGI3 will help you examine key
motivators and match work-related values, interests, and skills to educational and career pathways. First you will enter your work-
related preferences, and then SIGI3 will search its built-in library and find those careers that most closely match your preferences.
SIGI3’s library is so large that it may well find career options that you never even considered or knew existed!
SIGI3 takes the confusion out of career and educational planning. Straightforward instructions and logical sequencing will enable
you to work independently, right from the start. You can work through the program at your own pace, moving steadily toward your
personal goals.
