Interests

Do you know which kinds of careers are of most interest to you? Answering this question with confidence is a great first step towards career planning. If you are unsure of the answer, start the process of self-assessment with a careers interest questionnaire. 

The Career Interests Inventory developed by Team Focus builds on decades of research by Holland, a distinguished psychologist who developed a theory of career choice that dominates to the theory and research of career counselling to this day . Learn more about more about Holland’s theory of career choice below. 

Hollands’ core theory is that people can be described a combination of six types (abbreviated RIASEC) which can be described as the person’s individual “interest code”:

  • Realistic
  • Investigative
  • Artistic
  • Social
  • Enterprising
  • Conventional
