Career Development

Self-Assessment

 

Holland List of Occupations

Based on the theory of career development specialist John Holland, Ph.D., people with the same or similar interests often enjoy the same types of careers and work environments. Holland Interest Codes are determined by taking an interest inventory, such as the condensed versions obtainable on the following web sites:  NY CareerZone and The Career Interest Game.  The six personality and work environment types identified by Holland are usually referred to by their first letters: RIASEC and are described briefly below:

  • Realistic – practical, physical, hands-on, mechanically inclined
  • Investigative – analytical, intellectual, scientific, explorative
  • Artistic – creative, original, independent, expressive
  • Social – cooperative, supporting, helping, healing/nurturing
  • Enterprising – competitive environments, leadership, persuading, administer over
  • Conventional – detail-oriented, organizing, clerical, structured

Once you determine your 3 letter Holland Code, you can use the occupations list below to explore possible career options related to your interest code.
