    John Holland’s Self-Directed Search (SDS) is a career assessment and exploration tool that matches your clients’ aspirations, activities, and talents to the career choices and educational opportunities that fit them best.  

    The theoretical foundation of the SDS is as strong as ever. The SDS uses the RIASEC model as a framework to help match your clients with jobs that best match their skills, personalities, and abilities. When SDS Summary Codes and Occupational Codes match, your clients are likely to find job satisfaction and career longevity.

    The SDS does not require any special training or certification and can be used by school counselors, career development facilitators, education specialists, and career professionals.

    And the SDS continues to evolve, offering multi-level discount pricing (see below), along with features such as a new (and more inclusive) gender ID field and an option for your group administrator or institution to review individual SDS results before they are shared with the test taker.

    If your organization is interested in multiple administrations, we offer three options: group, partnership, and institutional levels, depending on your needs. To get more information, or to set up an SDS demonstration for your institution, please complete the form above. We offer purchasing by credit card, check, wire transfer, or institutional purchase order if ordering within the U.S. or Canada. For more information, please visit out pricing page.
