About Us

Rick Trow Productions (RTP) has been serving America’s educators since 1965.  A pioneer in educational media, RTP has developed hundreds of school assembly productions, videos, software and workbooks.  Many are award-winners.  Sponsors have included Eastman Kodak, Time/Life, Coca-Cola and U.S. Government Agencies.  Thousands of educators have purchased more than 12 million copies of The Career Game to help students convert hobbies, heroes and favorite activities into individualized career profiles.

All Career Game workbooks and Internet techniques are organized according to the six personality types identified by J.P. Guilford and later refined into the RIASEC Hexagon through the brilliant work of Dr. John Holland.  For educators who want more depth to the exercise, it can be enhanced with a coordinated web site that takes full advantage of current research and advancement in the career development field. 

Our multimedia approach excites curiosity, promotes discussion and builds self-esteem.  Whether you stop after a single workbook or choose to expand the exercise through the coordinated web site The Career Game family of products is easy to use, accurate and money back guaranteed. 

We invite you to try our highly acclaimed program.  Your students will appreciate the opportunity to connect their everyday experiences to actual job possibilities -- and you will enjoy the deep personal satisfaction of knowing you’ve given them a motivational peek into the future.
