Crafts R-Realistic
Scientific I-Investigative
The Arts A-Artistic
Social S-Social
Business E-Enterprising
Office Operations C-Conventional


Key Features

CDM Internet is helpful in a variety of settings, enabling junior and high-school students to explore interests and possible career paths, college students to clarify their career direction and make informed decisions in selecting coursework and declaring majors, and adults re-entering the world of work or interested in changing jobs to learn about career options.

Using the CDM Internet, career planners of all ages are enabled to:

  • Work at home with career advisors and and/or parents
  • Revisit the CDM-R planning process as often as they like
  • Print out a copy of individual Interpretive Reports
  • Link directly from CDM-R inventory results to relevant job descriptions, training requirements, job outlooks, and national wages - as well as a college search web site and current job openings by state
  • Identify "In Demand" and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) jobs
  • View videos of workers at work in jobs that match their interests

Schools and other organizations can use this tool to:

  • Demonstrate accountability to parents and the community for preparing a knowledgeable, productive workforce by supplying students with a comprehensive, easy-to-use career planning system that presents the most current information
  • Easily arrange for students who have missed group career administrations to take the CDM-R group career assessment at individual make-up sessions
  • Support students in taking personal responsibility for their career planning and reporting by working more independently with the CDM system
  • Free up teachers' and counselors' time to assist their students
