Comment from P.A., Richland, WA
... our daughter did do the online exercise. She is a sophomore in high school and for the last couple of years has said she wants to be a dental hygienist. I have thought that something along the teaching line would better fit her gifts but haven't said anything - I want her to come to her own conclusions. After doing the tests several of the jobs it came up with for her were in the teaching field :) as well as creative fields and of course no dental hygiene at all. so she did a little research and found that she really doesn't fit the profile of someone who would enjoy dental hygiene, so she's starting to rethink her decision. This tool has been very helpful so far!

I like the option of answering beyond just "yes I like it or no I don't like it." Most programs limit the options to just the two.
I also like the fact that their are career choices that take into account interests, values, skills and personality.- It would be nice to see the careers that pertain to my specific Holland Code. For instance my Holland code is ISC, and it would be interesting to see all of the careers that fall under just ISC, even if they are few.
It would be helpful to see what matches with my interest level graph without going into each occupation. I haven't found on yet that I match up with.- I like the program a lot and will also use it to determine my teenagers' interests so that we know which direction to start focusing on in school. College is just around the corner and I want them to be confident in their major selections before we start investing our hard earned dollars into classes they may not like, half way through college.
