The RIASEC Inventory is designed to help people identify their most dominant work interests and then use this information to explore career options. It uses the RIASEC coding system developed by John Holland and is based on an assessment researched and developed by the U.S. Department of Labor. It is designed primarily for ease-of-use, and it contains the latest government data drawn from the Department of Labor’s O*NET (Occupational Information Network) database.
The assessment is useful to anyone involved in career exploration, including students deciding on a career or educational direction, unemployed adults identifying alternative job objectives, and individuals in the middle of a career transition. Its ease-of-use makes it suitable for individuals with lower reading capabilities and its brevity makes it particularly well suited to programs where time is limited. Care has been taken to make the device easy to read and simple to interpret with little or no input or guidance from the administrator. The instrument is ideally suited for both group and individual administration.
The assessment is designed to be self-scored and self-interpreted and takes approximately 10–15 minutes to complete, though more time may be needed to research job titles of interest and engage in further career exploration activities.
The RIASEC Inventory consists of 72 items representing work, learning, and leisure activities such as “Build kitchen cabinets” or “Play a musical instrument.” These activities are scored as either like, unsure, or dislike. Results are totaled in six dimensions corresponding to the six interest areas of the Holland scale
Users then are guided through the process of matching those interests to potential careers and are given suggestions for further research.
A quick and easy assessment, the RIASEC Inventory is perfect for job seekers who have little time to spend on testing and career exploration. Furthermore, it’s highly compatible with a wide variety of occupational resources. Job titles featured in this inventory are drawn directly from the most current version of the O*NET.
