Job Corps Outreach and Admissions
Guide to
The Holland Career Interest Assessment
For young adults, one of the most annoying questions is “what do you want to do for a living?”
Some people have a “calling” to their chosen profession. They knew exactly what they wanted
to do since the second grade. For the rest of us, it’s not that easy. How are you supposed to
know what occupation you want to pursue? A career test can help you discover who you are
and what you want out of your career.
Don’t panic! Idaho Job Corps uses the Holland Career Interest Assessment. This “test” is
actually fun to take! There are no grades, and you don’t pass or fail. There are no right or
wrong answers, so go with what you feel is the best answer. This test will give you ideas about
what you possibly could do for a career, based off your interests, rather than what you just
think you want to do.
On the following page, please fill in the circle for each activity you like, or would like to do. For
example, do you like solving puzzles? Playing games like sudoku and Scrabble? Then you would
fill in the circle to the right of that activity. If you don’t like an activity, just leave the circle
blank. Repeat that for every activity on the page. When you’re done, count the number of
filled circles in each column (“R” “I” “A” “S” “E” and “C”), and write the total in the bottom on
the column.
Once you have your totals, transfer them to the second page. The higher your total in a
category, the stronger your interest is in that grouping. The more interest you have in a
category, the more enjoyment and satisfaction you will have with your work.
R = Realistic
I = Investigative
A = Artistic
S = Social
E = Enterprising
C = Conventional
Finally, research and compare your interests to Job Corps’ career technical clusters. Work
environments fall into similar categories, as well. Therefore, when you determine which
categories you have the strongest interest in, your Workforce Consultant can help you identify
which Job Corps training fit you best.

Idaho Department of Labor
Job Corps Privacy Act Statement
This statement applies to forms used by the Idaho Department of Labor for the Job Corps program that contain
confidential data from Job Corps students and applicants.
This statement describes the collection and use of information from Job Corps students and applicants by the
Department of Labor for the Job Corps program.
The Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, requires all Federal agencies, including Job Corps and its agents, to give the
following facts to each person from whom it requires information:
The statutory authority for the request
Why the information is needed
Whether it is voluntary or mandatory to give the information
The effect of not providing information
The use which may be made of the information
Whether disclosure of the Social Security Number (SSN) is mandatory or voluntary, by what status or other
authority the number is solicited, and what uses will be made of it.
These items are more fully explained in the following sections. If you have any questions about your rights and
responsibilities under the Privacy Act, you should ask for assistance from the person assigned to you in Job Corps as a
Counselor or Advisor.
I. The Department of Labor’s Authorization to Collect Information
Job Corps is a part of the Idaho Department of Labor. The Department’s authority to collect information from Job
Corps applicants and students is found in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014. The
Department’s authority to solicit the Social Security number is found in the Social Security Administration’s
regulation, WIOA and the Job Corps regulations under WIOA.
II. Why the information is needed
Job Corps needs information about age, citizenship, school and draft status, health, employability, behavior,
family income, environment, and other matters related to your eligibility, assignment, and progress in Job Corps.
This information may be used to:
Determine whether your educational and vocational needs can be best met through Job Corps or another
program in your home community
Determine your potential assignment
Lay the basis for determining your progress in Job Corps programs and activities
Determine your eligibility to enter Job Corps for health needs (medical, dental, and/or mental health) while a
student, and also to establish and maintain a record of your health care during the period of enrollment in Job
Corps for legal and administrative reasons, e.g., future health care, and indication of quality of health care
Maintain a record of cash, clothing, and other benefits received by the individual
III. Obligatory and Voluntary Information and Possible Consequences of Withholding Information or Providing
False Information
While there are no penalties under the law for refusing to supply information, WIOA requires the collection and
maintenance of a wide range of personal information about you, including your Social Security number, to satisfy
enrollment requirements. Not supplying the needed information could delay or prevent you from enrolling and
participating in Job Corps.
The provision of false information by you could lead to expulsion from the program and/or prosecution under the
U.S. Criminal Code when such information is used to support a fraudulent claim to benefits.

the following reasons:

To provide State and local health departments information about all cases of infection or disease that are
required to be reported to them; and infected persons who are unwilling to notify their contacts on center for
the purpose of assisting in the counseling of contact for their protection and care
To provide information to contractors and agencies to enable them to properly administer the program,
including the payment of student allowances and maintenance and disposal of student pay records
To provide information to Federal, State, and local agencies and community-based organizations to facilitate

of the Job Corps program and other employment and training programs
To provide the Selective Service System with information which will allow them to register you automatically
for Selective Service when you become 18, if you are male and not already registered
