This case also underscores the importance of readiness assessment in career intervention and illustrates the effective use of CIP theory (Sampson et al., 2004) and the RIASEC model (Holland, 1997).
Social cognitive career theory (e.g., Morgan, 2013; Varghese, Fitzgerald, Chronister, Cummings, & Forrest, 2013) was the most commonly used theory, with career construction--life design theory (e.g., Bassot & Reed, 2013; Savickas, 2013) and RIASEC theory (e.g., Chason et al., 2013; Dozier et al., 2013) showing considerable influence.
Regarding RIASEC dimensions, Enterprising interests
Tracey and Ward (1998) and Tracey (2001, 2002) have suggested that applying a RIASEC model to the structure of interests in children may be premature.
Specifically, the RIASEC ordering for all samples, excluding African American women in the general representative sample and Latinos in the adult sample, was found to be circular.
Regarding career choice consideration, 48 occupations involving the six RIASEC career types were selected (with eight items for each type).
With respect to Holland's RIASEC classifications, the majority of the girls identified Investigative occupations (n = 24) whereas the majority of the working females had occupations that were classified as Realistic (n = 19).

conceptualized in terms of the RIASEC typology of person-environment fit
Findings indicated that sets of Strong Interest Inventory (SII) Basic Interest Scales discriminated significantly between satisfied and dissatisfied workers in 17 of 22 occupational groups beyond the ability of RIASEC types (as measured by SII General Occupational Themes scales) to do so.
Results from a study (Barclay, 2012; Barclay & Wolff, 2012) using this approach indicated a moderate correlation (r = .46) between theme-coded CCI participant responses and their Strong Interest Inventory (Donnay et al., 2004) three-letter RIASEC codes.
