Picture Interest Career Survey Picture Interest Career Survey (PICS), Second Edition

Pub Date: June 2011
Price: $46.95 package of 25

The best-selling Picture Interest Career Survey (PICS) is a language-free career interest inventory for those with low reading levels, limited English, or special needs. Individuals identify their occupational interests by using pictures of people at work rather than text-based items. Individuals review 36 sets of three pictures and choose which of the three portrayed occupations seems most interesting.

The pictures correspond to Holland occupational interest categories: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional. After test takers complete all 36 items, they score their responses using color-coded columns and record their scores on a visual profile. Based on their scores, people discover their Occupational PICS Code, a three-letter Holland interest designation that can be used for career research and counseling. Descriptions of the Holland codes and related career fields are included for those who wish to interpret scores themselves. The assessment takes less than 15 minutes to complete and is suited to all backgrounds. It can be self-administered, self-scored, and given individually or in groups.

The new edition includes streamlined instructions, an updated design, some modified pictures for greater clarity, and expanded validity information.
