Based on the work of Dr. John L. Holland, Ph.D.

Whether you are just entering the job market, recently unemployed, or simply unhappy with your current job, an assessment of your vocational interests may help you find a more satisfying career. This Career Code Test is based on the popular Holland Codes, which are widely used in career counseling across the United States and even endorsed by the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration.

What is your career code? For each of the following statements, indicate how well it applies to you below.

The IDRlabs Career Code Test (IDR-CCT©) was developed by IDRlabs International. The IDR-CCT was informed by a scientifically validated instrument for the assessment of vocational interests and aptitudes: The Holland RIASEC Model of Occupational Themes. The IDR-CCT is not associated with any researchers or organizations that contributed to the above psychological tool, or with their affiliated research institutions.

The IDRlabs Career Code Test was informed by Holland and colleagues’ theory of careers and successful vocational life. The purpose of the Holland Career Codes is to explain why individuals are better suited to certain workplaces over others and to offer real-world guidance to help people select jobs that will provide them with the greatest sense of satisfaction. The present career assessment is not intended to provide or replace professional career counselling. IDRlabs International and the present IDRlabs Career Types Test are independent of any of the above researchers, related organizations, or affiliated institutions.

The Career Code Test is based on a psychometrically valid tool for the assessment of this psychological construct. However, free online tests such as this are solely initial considerations of the concept being examined and cannot deliver entirely accurate assessments of your personality or any components of your psychological state. As the publishers of this free online test, which allows you to assess the career type most suitable for your personality, we have strived to make the test as reliable, valid, and comprehensive as possible by subjecting this test to statistical controls and validation.

Though created and statistically validated by professionals in the field of psychology and personality testing, free online tests such as the present vocational assessment do not provide professional assessments or recommendations of any kind; the results of our free online Career Code Quiz are intended for educational and entertainment purposes only, and are therefore provided “as-is.” For more detailed information about the current test or any of our other online psychological tests, please consult our Terms of Service.
