What the results mean


The traits shown in the results of the Career Assessment tool are referred to as the user’s “Holland code.” This three-letter code is based on John Holland’s theory of vocational choice, which includes six personality types known as RIASEC. RIASEC attempts to determine the best career matches based upon personality types.

Your answers to the assessment determine your three main personality traits, which are then used to determine your best potential career matches.

The Career Assessment tool uses an algorithm to compile your answers and provide a relative score from 1 to 100, which is called a percent-match.

The best possible score is 100%.

While we only show occupations that are at least an 85% match, occupations that score below 85% could also be a fit. If you want to see additional matches, you can take the O*NET Interest Profiler at:
