Incarcerated women face challenges to community re-entry and employment, including unemployment and low wages. We explored vocational interests with women (N = 114) at a midwest US prison. Career aspirations were explored through self-reported employment history and interests, O*NET survey, and Holland codes. Findings inform the development of OT interventions and prison programming to improve postrelease employment among incarcerated women.
