Holland Codes for Job Bank Listing

The indexed Job Bank listing that I have mentioned in previous posts (1, 2, 3) now indicates the Holland Codes for NOC categories, whenever possible.

In the instance shown above one can see that NOC 4152 'Social Workers' might suit people with either of the Holland Codes 'SE' or 'ES'. As usual, one would suggest to clients that they consider this option if their three-character Holland Code contains the characters 'S' or 'E' anywhere.

The mappings were obtained for the 'Self-Directed Search' Form 'E' 4th edition. I notice that not all of the NOC codes are mentioned in this document.
