World-of-Work Map

When an individual receives the results from any of ACT's career-related assessments, a personalized report is provided. This report suggests career areas on the World-of-Work Map for more exploration.

The World-of-Work Map organizes occupations into six clusters, 12 regions, and 26 career areas. It graphically shows how occupations relate to each other according to primary work tasks.

Some of these work tasks include:

  • Data: Facts, numbers, files, business procedures
  • Ideas: Knowledge, insights, theories, new ways of saying or doing something
  • People: Care, services, leadership, sales
  • Things: Machines, tools, living things, and materials such as food, wood, or metal
