Career Values InvenTory

Career Values Inventory

The O*NET Career Values Inventory helps individuals explore over 900 O*NET job titles based on their work values and motivators.

Unlike the first edition of the Values Inventory which used a card sort to explore work values, the new edition uses an easier forced-choice method.

Consisting of only 36 items and taking less than 20 minutes to complete, this method provides accurate results in less time, as well as simplifies administration and scoring.

Once individuals have identified their most important work values, the inventory guides them to match their results to potential careers organized by both values and the preparation required (using the DOL’s five “job zones”).

In depth suggestions for further research help individuals explore those careers, and a reproducible Job Information/Action Plan worksheet helps them pursue their goals.

The inventory is self-scoring and self-interpreting, takes less than thirty minutes to complete, and is based on decades of research.

Valid and reliable, this assessment is an ideal starting point for anyone engaging in career exploration.

Its incorporation of O*NET job titles also makes it highly compatible with a wide variety of occupational resources.

The O*NET is changing. The Department of Labor is revising and streamlining the Occupational Information Network to better match the rapidly changing economy. The Second Edition of the O*NET Career Values Inventory has been substantially revised.

In addition to moving from a card sort to a forced choice mechanic, it will feature streamlined instructions, an updated list of resources, an improved job information worksheet, and job titles drawn directly from the latest version of the O*NET.

Career Values Inventory

Career Values Inventory

The O*NET Career Values Inventory helps individuals explore over 900 O*NET job titles based on their work values and motivators.

Unlike the first edition of the Values Inventory which used a card sort to explore work values, the new edition uses an easier forced-choice method.

Consisting of only 36 items and taking less than 20 minutesto complete, this method provides accurate results in less time, as well as simplifies administration and scoring.

Once individuals have identified their most important work values, the inventory guides them to match their results to potential careers organized by both values and the preparation required (using the DOL’s five “job zones”).

In depth suggestions for further research help individuals explore those careers, and a reproducible Job Information/Action Plan worksheet helps them pursue their goals.

The inventory is self-scoring and self-interpreting, takes less than thirty minutes to complete, and is based on decades of research.

Valid and reliable, this assessment is an ideal starting point for anyone engaging in career exploration.

Its incorporation of O*NET job titlesalso makes it highly compatible with a wide variety of occupational resources.

The O*NET is changing. The Department of Labor is revising and streamlining the Occupational Information Network to better match the rapidly changing economy. The Second Edition of the O*NET Career Values Inventory has been substantially revised.

In addition to moving from a card sort to a forced choice mechanic, it will feature streamlined instructions, an updated list of resources, an improved job information worksheet, and job titles drawn directly from the latest version of the O*NET.
