FYI (Find Your Interests)

Frequently Asked Questions
- Who can take the FYI?
You can only take the FYI if you have taken the ASVAB test. A few weeks after you take the ASVAB test, you will receive your ASVAB Summary Results Sheet. This sheet will have your Access Code that you can use to log on to this site and take the FYI. Learn more about taking the ASVAB test.
- I took the FYI at school and have my Top Interest Codes already. What do I do now?
First, enter your Access Code in the Login to MyASVAB box. Next, under Step 1 - My Interests click on the "Enter your raw scores from the FYI" link. Now, input your Raw Scores from the paper version of the FYI. Select your gender, then click the “Enter” button. You will come to a page which shows you two sets of scores: Combined and Gender-Specific. Choose which set of scores to use for career exploration. Once you have done this, your Top Interest Codes will appear in the "Quick Links" box every time that you log in to this site.
- I took the FYI at school, but I’d like to take it again online. Can I?
Yes. You can take the FYI two times online. (However, if you have entered your Raw Scores from the paper version of the FYI here, you can only take the FYI one more time online.)
- Will I see my FYI codes the next time I log in?
Yes. Once you have taken the FYI online and received your Top Interest Codes, you will see your codes in the "Quick Links" box the next time that you log in.
- I am using a school computer. Where do I enter my Access Code? I don’t see a place to enter it.

Skill Importance Level
The Skill Importance Levels show the relative importance of Verbal, Math, and Science and Technical skills for success in each occupation. The information presented is general and does not mean that you need a certain level of skills (as measured by the ASVAB scores) to qualify for the occupation. That is, there is no direct comparison between your Career Exploration Scores and these levels. Remember, you will likely need further education or training before you enter most careers.
The Skill Importance Levels are divided into three categories:
Understand that you can improve your Skill Importance Levels with additional training and/or education.
- The skill is very important for a given job
- The skill is moderately important for the job
- The skill is less important for the job.
- When considering occupations with these levels, you should ask yourself some basic questions:
- How important are these three skill areas?
- What do you need to do to gain these necessary skills?
- What further education, on-the-job training, or vocational preparation do you need?
- Do your ASVAB Career Exploration Scores suggest that you will be successful in this education or training?
