Holland's occupational classification is used to analyze work histories of young men and women ages 14 through 24. The analysis supports the usefulness of occupational classification for organizing work histories. The results indicate that for both sexes the classification reflected regular patterns for job changes. In addition, the category of a previous job is found to be a good predictor of subsequent jobs; likewise, the category of a current job forecasts the category of his/her vocational aspiration. Finally, consistency of an occupational code was related to job stability for whites.
