World of Work Map

The World-of-Work Map organizes occupations into six clusters (parallel to John Holland's six occupational types), 12 regions, and 26 career areas (groups of similar jobs). It graphically shows how occupations relate to each other according to primary work tasks.


Holland's Vocational Types

According to Dr. Holland's theory of vocational personality, there are six vocational personality types. This is one of the most widely accepted approaches to vocational choice. Numerous instruments have been developed over the past 20 years that are based on Dr. Holland's theory, including the Strong-Campbell Inter est Inventory (Strong, Hansen & Campbell, 1985) and Strong Interest Inventory, a.k.a "The SII" (Harmon, Hansen, Borgen & Hammer, 1994).
