Our Testimonials

"The Self-Directed Search is a valuable tool for me as I work with high school and
college students looking for a career path. Hollandcodes.com makes ordering easy
and provides valuable training materials for me.

If I have a special need, or if I need something quickly, they are there to help me out!"

D. W., Director, Career Services and the Center for Learning and Teaching, Oregon
Institute of Technology

As a graduate student in Counseling Edu./Counseling Psy., I thought that it would be a


simple process in locating and implementing a quality Career Development
Assessment, to help the teens in the Youth Ministry which I oversee and the adults
which I consult in Career Development. However to my surprise this was a more
tedious process than I had anticipated, that is until I came across the website during my
research of the Holland Code SDS.

Hollandcodes.com turned out to be a big blessing in that not only did I receive
assessment booklets at a cost effective price but I also received other support materials
and most importantly staff support which was always available to help me with any
questions or challenges that I encountered. The staff of Learning 4 Life provided me
with expertise unlike that received in any other material support system.

Considering that I received knowledge far beyond the price of the material I felt that it
would be a disservice not to thank and commend Dr. Askew and the
Hollandcodes.com Team.

This is a note to thank you (Dr. Askew) for all the assistance, support, and information in
our implementation of the Self-directed Search. We are using this tool as a standard
assessment for all of our students enrolled in our Credit Recovery Program. Vocational
coaches use the results and the college and career finders to assist students with
developing their life plan which includes career and academic goals. The additional
information you provided us on the SDS was helpful for training our staff.

The service you have provided us has been impeccable. As you know, you even
arranged an overnight delivery so we could have the materials in time for a training.

We will definitely be using the SDS with all of our Credit Recovery Programs and relying
on your Center to provide the materials and information we need.
