  • Career Interests Game!
    This game is designed to help you match your interests and skills with similar careers. It can help you begin thinking about how your personality will fit in with specific work environments and careers. This exercise is based on Dr. John Holland's theory that people and work environments can be loosely classified into six different groups. While you may have some interests in and similarities to several of the six groups, you likely are attracted primarily to two or three of the areas. These two or three letters are your Holland Code.
