ACT's World-of-Work Map


Program Description

World-of-Work Map: The World-of-Work Map organizes occupations into six clusters (parallel to John Holland's six occupational types), 12 regions, and 26 career areas (groups of similar jobs). It graphically shows how occupations relate to each other according to primary work tasks.  The online map offers users detailed descriptions of the clusters, regions, and career areas.

When an individual receives the results from any of ACT's career-related assessments (e.g., the ACT®, PLAN®, EXPLORE®, DISCOVER®), a personalized report is provided. This report suggests Map regions and career areas on the World-of-Work Map for more exploration.
