The American Counseling Association just published Dr. Osborn's review in its July 2011 issue of Counseling Today. Click on this link to see her Match Up! review at our website.
According to Dr. Osborn,
“Match Up! will be of great use to students and counselors who quickly need a list of options related to personality.”
She also found “the e-book makes reading not only easy and enjoyable but reader-centered.” She continues...
"The authors state that their goal is to “help young people and adults make the best career and educational decisions possible.” Jones and Jones have created an interactive book that provides a strong framework for accomplishing this goal. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for busy school counselors, and others who work with adolescents and young adults and have that same goal. It is a great resource that provides solid information necessary for making effective career decisions."
In “Match Up!” readers see:
- Which majors fit their personality,
- A description of each major,
- Related occupations, and
- How to find colleges that offer those majors.

“Match Up!”, by Dr. Lawrence K. Jones, NCC and Juliet Wehr Jones, J.D., GCDF, is the first publication to show students and adults returning to school all college majors matching their Holland personality types. All of the majors (1400+) currently used by the U.S. Department of Education (and Canada) were scientifically analyzed and organized according to the Holland personality types. Studies show that the closer the personality-major match, the more likely students will earn good grades, persist, and graduate on time.
