Occupational Interest Profile (OIP)

The Occupational Interest Profile measures seven fields of interest and five work needs. It can then produce a comprehensive report making recommendations of suitable careers for the respondent. If the OIP is administered in conjunction with the General Reasoning Test Battery, the report engine can also take ability into account when generating an integrated report on suitable careers.

This report provides career-relevant information and is intended as a guide for the professional to utilise in writing their own integrated report. Additionally, it has summarised the information contained in the standard report of the GRT2 and the extended report of the OIP.
