The Position Classification Inventory (PCI) lets you assign Holland Summary Codes to any position or job class in your organization. The PCI enables employees to use their SDS results to locate and explore matching current and future openings within their firm; analyzes positions within an existing job classification system to determine whether different positions belong in the same job class; assesses the degree of match between worker and job; and provides an understanding of employee and supervisor perceptions of a specific position.
The PCI also helps counselors to analyze a client's current job, assess person-job match, and clarify vocational problems; increase a client's understanding of his or her current job situation; and provide a structure for locating future career possibilities.
A worker, supervisor, or job analyst can complete this 84-item inventory in 10 minutes. He or she describes the demands, skills, and personal styles and characteristics required in a position by rating each item on a 3-point scale. Respondents record their answers on a separate 2-part carbonless answer sheet, which incorporates the scoring key and profile grid. You can score the PCI in approximately 2 minutes and then plot the scores to obtain a RIASEC profile of the job.
