Self-Directed Search (SDS) Career Explorer
Features and Benefits
Meets the need for a career assessment instrument appropriate for individuals in junior high and middle school settings. The Career Explorer is a self-administered assessment of a student's career interests. The easy-to-understand framework helps students learn about themselves, their educational and career plans, and the working world in general.
Students answer questions about their occupational aspirations or daydreams. They assess their preferences for activities, skills, and careers, and estimate their abilities in each of six areas based on John Holland's RIASEC theory. The resulting 2-letter Summary Code can be compared to a listing of over 400 jobs in the Careers Booklet, which also offers information about education, as well as resources for further career exploration.
