Welcome to the Match Game! This is a game designed to help you match your interests with careers. It can help you begin thinking about how your interests will fit in with specific work environments and careers. Birds of a feather really do flock together…come play along and see what happens!

This exercise is based on Dr. John Holland's theory that people and work environments can be loosely classified into six different groups. While you may have some interests in and similarities to several of the six areas, you may be attracted primarily to two or three of the areas. These two or three letters are your Holland Code.

Read the descriptions of each area and list the area you would be drawn to first, then your second choice, and finally your third choice then continue researching to find careers, majors, industries, and hobbies which align with each interest area.
