The Self-Directed Search (SDS) is a self-administered and self-scored career counselling aid based on John Holland's theory of careers. It provides a vocational counselling experience by stimulating what a person and a counsellor might cover together in several interviews.
The Form R is designed primarily for use with secondary students, tertiary students and adults.
The SDS Australian 2012 Update Alphabetical Occupations Finder includes 1184 occupations covering most of the workforce, arranged in alphabetical order, to make it easier to find the Holland Code for any occupation title.
Each occupation is designated by its six-digit code from the ANZSCO. Skill level is also included for each occupation.
The Alphabetical Occupation Finder is sold individually.
