When John Holland introduced his theory more than 50 years ago, he sought to examine personal and environmental factors contributing to successful vocational decision-making and work satisfaction over a lifetime. Evidence that Holland achieved his goals can be seen in more than 2,000 publications citing RIASEC theory and its applications.
