Career Success Predictor
Matching the right person with the right job or career can have a significant impact on both employee and employer. For the employee, finding the right person-career match can drastically affect his/her income, social status, friends, family life, job and general life satisfaction. For the employer, appropriately matching employees with the job they will be performing can lead to increased job satisfaction and morale, resulting in increased productivity and decreased turnover.
PsyMetrics' Career Success Predictor assesses an individual's interests in terms of how they match the specific occupational environment they will be working in. Based on factor analytic research, psychologist J. L. Holland developed a six-factor model widely used today in career assessment. This model suggests there are six occupational environments and each is associated with a particular set of personal interests.
Below are the six versions of the Career Success Predictor, one for each occupational environment. Once you identify the environment(s) the candidate is being evaluated for, the appropriate version(s) is administered to the candidate to determine the degree of fit between the candidate's interests and the job he/she is being considered for.
The full version of the Career Success Predictor (assessing the fit within all six environments) is also available for individuals who would like guidance as to what occupations best fit their personal interests and therefore potentially leading to higher levels of job satisfaction and career success. The report generates a score for each of the six environments and suggestions for specific occupations that best match their interests.
