Other Assessments By Mark Majors, Ph.D.

  • The Majors Occupational  Environment Measure™ (Majors OEM™) (Career Exploration Profile)
    • is a 93-item instrument that measures interests, tasks/activities and environmental settings. This information is used to form separate Preference and Avoidance scales for 11 Occupational Action Groupings (OAG; 22 scales total), as well as 6 scales of Global Interest Areas (GIA; provides Holland Occupational Code) that represent aspects of developed personality. The OEM is simple and easy to administer online. The MajorsOEM takes on average 15 minutes to complete and is valid for ages 16 (high school juniors) and up.
    • The Majors OEM – Career Exploration Profile (Majors OEM-CEP) report provides your clients with valuable information to help them make career decisions that are satisfying and a good fit for their personality. It is equally effective for those who are starting out or changing careers; anytime making the right career choice is important. The MajorsOEM-CEP makes the process of choosing the “right” career or occupation understandable by putting structure into your client’s decision-making process. Clients learn how to identify the possible satisfying occupations, and reduce the chance that they will be surprised later by unexpected disappointments. The CEP report reveals the individual’s patterns for Avoiding or Preferring the 11 Occupational Activity Groupings (groups of tasks, activities and environments in which they are performed). They will also discover how their Global Interest Area (parallel to Holland Occupational Code) results can connect them to different working environments. This report gives specific process information to help your clients make an informed career decision leading to occupational satisfaction.

    • The MajorsOEM Satisfaction and Retention Profile is a report that is designed to help your clients improve their occupational experience and help keep them in their current job. The results are descriptive and not part of any complex theory. This report will not tell them what to do or encourage them to make career changes. The results are from eleven Occupational Action Groupings (OAG) based on common occupational tasks and activities and the environments in which they occur, and six Global Interest Areas (GIA) that represent aspects of developed personality that are commonly used to provide matching between the environment and the individual (RIASEC). The individuals’ preference and avoidance pattern across the eleven OAGs as well as their personality matching profile for the GIA is given. The results give your clients:
      • An understanding of how they interact with and match their working environment.
      • Information about how they can improve their occupational satisfaction and relationships.
      • A  general structure to help them to identify how some of their individual personality differences shape the behaviors they have chosen in the past and will choose in the future.
