Grand Rapids Community College students can now match their Holland personality to GRCC college majors and programs using Career Key’s “College Major Match” service. This new college majors webpage enables GRCC students to benefit from studies showing a close “personality-major match” leads to higher grades, persistence in a major, and timely graduation.
Current and prospective GRCC students can visit the new GRCC College Major Match page at the Career Key website, http://www.careerkey.org under “Choose a College Major.” It lists all GRCC college majors and programs scientifically classified by Holland personality type and Career Key work group.
Students start by taking The Career Key's career test, a scientifically valid assessment of Holland’s six personality types. It takes 10 to 15 minutes and can be taken from any Internet connected computer or tablet. Students then explore Career Key’s list of GRCC majors classified by personality type, choosing matching majors that interest them. Instructions tell students where to find information at the GRCC website about each major or program.
Current GRCC students can access the assessment using instructions on the GRCC College Major Match page. Prospective students or those interested in matching their personality to GRCC majors can purchase the test at the Career Key website.
