Abstract:

A number of research efforts are developing recruiting-compatible vocational guidance VG systems. Efficient VG requires the classification of both occupational preferences and occupations according to a common scheme so that matching of applicant and occupational characteristics can be accomplished systematically. This is particularly important in VG systems for military enlisted recruiting because the job applicants tend to be career-naive and no professional guidance counseling is available. The objective of this effort was to classify entry-level Navy ratings and Army military occupational specialities MOS by the system most widely used for VG counseling, the Holland coding system. Under a 3-year interlaboratory agreement, NAVPERSRANDCEN pursued several research and development efforts in support of the Armys advanced computerized accessioning system, the Joint Optical Information Network JOIN. This report details the classification of entry-level Army and Navy jobs by the Holland Coding System.
