Researching Careers- Directions for Online O*NET Interest Profiler Assessment
This is a handout with instructions on how to access and take a free online Career Interest Profiler Assessment from the Occupational Network (O*NET). Students are asked 60 questions based on what they like to do and then students will be given their results of their top 3 interest areas based on John Holland's Career Codes. Based on the theory of John Holland, Ph.D., people with similar interests are often found in the same work environments. Holland Occupational themes include: Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, Conventional, and Realistic. The results like I mentioned above tell students what three they fit.
There is also a job zone portion of the profiler. First it explains each job zone and then students will have to choose a job zone. A job zone is how much experience and education you want for a job. So, job zone one is like a high school diploma or less experience, and job zone 5 is going to college for 8+ years to say become a surgeon. Students choose a career zone and can browse through the list of potential careers that come up.
Great assessment to have students take when studying a unit on researching careers.
