Career Clusters and Holland Codes

Holland codes can help match interests to careers.

You may want students or clients to explore career clusters by their interests. Holland codes are personality types created by psychologist John Holland as part of his theory of career choice. If you have used Holland codes in the past, then use the list below to match Holland codes to career clusters.
