    .

    John Holland (1985) developed a system of personality types to classify jobs into job categories, interest clusters, or work personality environments. The system is the Holland Hexagon Model or Holland Codes. In the Holland Model, these categories represent work personalities. The personalities were Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional. Assessments using Holland typology link vocational interests to job families using a three-letter RIASEC or Holland code. Different assessments provide information on the relationship between these job personalities and key characteristics, college majors, hobbies, abilities, related careers.

    Acquire Career Clusters information.

    In the 1960s, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) conducted research on career exploration, career clusters, interest areas, career jobs, career salary, career research, career information, career education, career outlook, Clusters, interest areas and work groups. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) classified the Clusters and published the information in 1979 published in the Guide for Occupational Exploration (GOE). With the input of the Department of Educations Office of Vocational and Adult Education and State Career Clusters Initiative, the GOE now consists of 16 Interests Areas or Clusters -

    1. Agriculture, Food, & Natural Resources 2. Architecture & Construction 3. Arts, A/V Technology & Communication 4. Business, Management & Administration 5. Education & Training 6. Finance 7. Government & Public Administration 8. Health Science 9. Hospitality & Tourism 10. Human Services 11. Information Technology 12. Law, Public Safety & Security 13. Manufacturing 14. Marketing, Sales & Service 15. Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics 16. Transportation, Distribution & Logistics

    The Career Clusters, GOE Codes, and

    the Holland Codes Cross-Reference Table

    According to the Enhanced Occupational Outlook Handbook, there is a correlation between the Clusters, GOE Interest Areas, Holland Codes, career exploration, career jobs, career salary, career research, and career information. Some of the Clusters and GOE Interest Areas fit in one or more Holland Codes group.
