HELPING PEOPLE DISCOVER RICH AND FULFILLING CAREERS
The Career Interest Profiler is a Canadian developed measure of the six Holland’s Occupational codes (RIASEC). The Career Interest Profiler (CIP) measures six traits and suggests 20-40 top careers that fit the test taker’s interests. Unlike many interest inventories that focus on professional careers, the Career Interest Profiler offers a substantial number of vocational/technical occupations that do not require a college or university degree, as well as many that do.
In comparison to the Strong Interest Inventory, the Career Interest Profiler provides a brief profile that highlights the client’s reported level of interest in each of Holland’s six categories.

The Career Interest Profiler was designed to clarify the types of activities a person enjoys and highlight occupations where these interests can be met. By combining an in-depth description of a person’s likes and dislikes along with jobs that match these preferences, the CIP can guide career decision makers. This allows people to explore a variety of occupations which have something in common with their interests. The goal of the CIP is not to identify one perfect job for a person, but to help them focus their career search on areas which relate to their interests and hold the best promise for a satisfying and rewarding career.
