The Holland Code is also called the RIASEC test, standing for the six occupation categories described in the test. This assessment seeks to determine what type of occupation would best suit the respondent. Options include realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising, and conventional.
Holland came up with the concept that which career someone would be good at is defined by their personality. That is why the test focuses on personality despite being career-oriented.
Often used in schools by career counselors, this test can also be used during the hiring process. The benefit is that it lets managers check that the role the person applied for is one that suits their skills.
