The O*NET Picture Interest Profiler (OPIP) is a video-based interest assessment that provides visual context for career decision-making. It enables individuals to accurately identify their interests and the jobs and careers they may wish to explore further.
The OPIP is based on Holland's RIASEC interest model and is delivered on a flash drive. The 25-minute video includes 66 narrated questions that describe activities people do on their jobs. Individuals 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.
