The RIASEC Inventory gives individuals a fast and informative way to explore occupations based on their interests. Using the RIASEC system developed by John Holland, the most widely used occupational interest coding system available, this inventory allows users to identify their job interests by responding to 72 work activity statements.

Users then are guided through the process of matching those interests to potential careers and are given suggestions for further research.
