About the Interest Inventory
Holland’s (1997) RIASEC model is the most popular and widely accepted theory in this area. Often thought of as personality types, these interest profiles provide unique information about individuals.
The model includes six core vocational interests: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional.
Interest inventories or assessments are often used to help students or early career professionals identify what line of work would be the best fit and lead to optimum job satisfaction. This can be considered a candidate-focused test that when included in the hiring process, can lead to wonderful benefits for both the employee and the employer.
