I like 'Match-Up!' a lot. I like that the text is limited to essential information and not heavy on theory or padded with excess information." Camille Numrich, Director of Career Services, Community College of Rhode Island

Career Key’s new e-book, Match Up! Your Personality to College Majors is the first to show students and adults changing careers all college majors matching their Holland personality types. “Studies show that this personality-major match has a major impact on the grades students earn and their chances of graduating,” says Dr. Lawrence Jones, author of The Career Key® , http://www.careerkey.org . Dr. Jones recommends “Match Up” plus a valid career test of Holland’s personality types to make an effective personality-major match.
“Match Up” helps students and adults returning to school identify majors that fit their personality. More than 1,400 U.S. and Canadian majors are grouped scientifically according to the six Holland personality types. Within each personality type, the college majors are organized into unique, easy to understand groups based on skills and abilities. The e-book describes each major, gives related occupations and shows how to find colleges that offer them. It is the first book to offer these features. The PDF format makes it easy to navigate.
Studies show that the better the personality-major match, the more likely students will earn good grades and graduate on time. A recent free Career Key report, "Choosing a College Major Based on Your Personality, what does the research say?" describes these research findings and shows students how they can take advantage of them.
“Match Up” is authored by two leaders in the field -- Juliet Wehr Jones, GCDF, J.D., author of the popular Career Key Blog, and Lawrence K. Jones, Ph.D., NCC, Professor Emeritus at North Carolina State University and author of The Career Key® career test and Career Key websites.
