Using Holland's Theory To Analyze Labor Market Data.
Reed, Corey
Some career theorists and other professionals have warned about dramatic shifts in the economy and implications for changes needed in career services and theory. This paper proposes that Hollands person-environment model (1997) is a valuable frame of reference for career counselors and instructors to use with clients and students in interpreting labor market data. Hollands model is used to present labor market census data from 1960 to 1990 followed by implications for career counseling and teaching. It is proposed that career counselors and instructors could use these labor market data to show the relationships between kinds of work, cognitive skill development, gender, and financial income and to help students develop more complex, yet practical schemas regarding the world of work. The information could also be used to highlight important issues such as occupational stereotypes, gender, work-family life balance, availability of types of work, and applications of Hollands theory.
