To decide which career path to follow is among the most important and most difficult choice every individual has to make. To help ease this burden for both high school students and their parents, Kent International College organized the Seminar ‘Holland Career Aptitude Test’ to introduce a widely used framework for career counseling, which was developed by psychologist and professor John L. Holland.
John L. Holland, an American psychologist and a professor at John Hopkins University, firmly believes that the personalities of every person correspond to the types of careers or occupations they prefer. His remarkable idea had led him to develop a unique aptitude test to help people on how to choose a career. This aptitude test was called Holland Occupational Themes or simply Holland Codes (RIASEC). RIASEC is an abbreviation that stands for realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising and conventional. RIASEC is also called John Holland’s Six Types of Personality. The career keys were being organized and classified in terms of college majors, careers, career clusters and career pathways. This ingenious career matching system allows you to determine the careers and college courses that are most likely suitable to your abilities, interest, skills and traits.
