Holland Codes Connected to O*NET Jobs
You may be familiar with John Holland’s theory of personality types. Holland’s premise: Matching your personality to a career brings work satisfaction and success.

Holland’s six personality types were popularized in the Self-Directed Search (SDS) career assessments. In 50 Best Jobs for Your Personality, the “RIASEC” codes are connected to current O*NET job descriptions in a much more direct way than in any other book.

In fact, this book goes way beyond just presenting job descriptions—it includes more than 140 “best jobs lists” organized by earnings, growth, education level, and much more. For example, each personality type has a list of the fastest growing jobs, the best paying jobs, jobs with the most openings, best jobs for people over 65, best jobs requiring two years or less of college, and more.

Job descriptions—there are more than 300—are packed with information. A sample job description appears below along with more sample pages and the complete table of contents.

Bonus: A brief assessment is included in Part II of the book. Readers indicate whether they like or dislike 30 activities for each of the six personality types, and the simple scoring yields their relative scores.

An appendix lists all 300 jobs in the book by their RIASEC codes—it’s easy to find the jobs that fit your personality.
