The O*NET Picture Interest Profiler (OPIP) is a video-based interest assessment that provides visual context for career decision-making. It enables participants to accurately identify their interests and what jobs and careers they wish to explore further.
The O*NET Picture Interest Profiler, based on Holland’s RIASEC interest model, includes reproducible materials that enable the tool to be used by an unlimited number of participants. The 25-minute video includes 66 narrated questions that describe activities people do on their jobs. Participants choose the jobs they like based upon both the interest statement and what they see depicted in the job. The interest code generated from their responses then becomes the starting point for exploration into jobs and careers.
Included on the flash drive:
- OPIP Administration Manual
- OPIP Video Interest Assessment
- Reproducible Materials
- Answer Sheet
- Exploration Forms
- O*NET Job Listing Booklet

The Career Priorities Profile (CPP) empowers individuals to identify priorities and evaluate their career or job choices based on those priorities.
The CPP provides a structured method for career exploration that leads individuals to identify whether their chosen careers are compatible with their personal and work priorities.
The CPP contains steps in which individuals gather information about their preferences in regard to work, prioritize them, and relate those priorities to their careers of interest. The final step of the CPP involves an analysis of the information gathered and goal planning. The CPP is intended to stimulate discussion between career decision-makers and the professionals working with them on specific career choices and the relative advantages and disadvantages of each.
The CPP aids in identifying potential conflicts, enables active planning, and facilitates an informed career choice.
The CPP is designed for all career decision-makers but is particularly helpful for people who have to change jobs or careers due to the onset of a disability or a change in life circumstances. The CPP has proven to be helpful to a variety of individuals who are in the process of making life decisions about their long-term career paths or more-immediate job placement decisions. It has been used by:
- Individuals with disabilities
- Injured workers
- Social Service recipients
- Displaced workers
- Individuals served by outplacement agencies
- Parents in career re-entry after raising a family
- Individuals in Job Corp or Workforce Development Programs
- Transitioning Youth
- Students in Career Research & Development Classes
- High school and college students who are undecided about career paths or majors
