"The Self-Directed Search is a valuable tool for me as I work with high school and college students looking for a career path. Hollandcodes.com makes ordering easy and provides valuable training materials for me..
If I have a special need, or if I need something quickly, they are there to help me out!"
D. W., Director, Career Services and the Center for Learning and Teaching, Oregon Institute of Technology
As a graduate student in Counseling Edu./Counseling Psy., I thought that it would be a simple process in locating and implementing a quality Career Development Assessment, to help the teens in the Youth Ministry which I oversee and the adults which I consult in Career Development. However to my surprise this was a more tedious process than I had anticipated, that is until I came across the website during my research of the Holland Code SDS.
Hollandcodes.com turned out to be a big blessing in that not only did I receive assessment booklets at a cost effective price but I also received other support materials and most importantly staff support which was always available to help me with any questions or challenges that I encountered. The staff of Holland Codes Resource Center provided me with expertise unlike that received in any other material support system.
Considering that I received knowledge far beyond the price of the material I felt that it would be a disservice not to thank and commend Dr. Askew and the Hollandcodes.com Team.
Professionals such as Hollandcodes.com, keeps Career Development Counselors on the cutting edge of the field through the Holland Code Model.

This is a note to thank you ( Dr. Askew) for all the assistance, support, and information in our implementation of the Self-Directed Search. We are using this tool as a standard assessment for all of our students enrolled in our Credit Recovery Program. Vocational coaches use the results and the college and career finders to assist students with developing their life plan which includes career and academic goals. The additional information you provided us on the SDS was helpful for training our staff.
The service you have provided us has been impeccable. As you know, you even arranged an overnight delivery so we could have the materials in time for a training.
We will definitely be using the SDS with all of our Credit Recovery Programs and relying on your Center to provide the materials and information we need.
J. G., National Director of Training, Community Education PartnersDr. Frank J. Minor
of Career Dimensions wishes to acknowledge and congratulate Dr. Mary E. Askew for her contributions to the profession of career and education planning and counseling.
Dr. Mary E. Askew has developed a career development planning process as outlined in her eBook Unlock the Treasure Chest. Do You Have the Keys? Guide to Career Planning that addresses the needs of students and adults in career transition. Dr. Askew’s approach recognizes that career planning is an ongoing process that requires the individual to adapt to the changes in one’s personal life situation and also the changes taking place in the world of work and education due to advances in technology and the dynamics of our global economy. Dr Askew’s career development philosophy is a contribution to the evolving “Career -Life Span-Life Space” theories.
My way of summing up Dr. Askew’s approach to career development planning as shown in her eBook is as follows:
Career Planning is an on going, continuous process throughout your life span. If you are taught the steps needed for career planning and if you are equipped with the appropriate tools and information, you will discover that you are a multi-potential person with many career options and are able to self-manage your career and education exploration, planning and goal setting.
According to Dr Askew, the basic steps for you to follow include:
As time goes by and your life roles and responsibilities change, reassess and take stock of your life situation and be willing to adapt your career to these changes.
