FOCUS 2 - Career Assessment
FOCUS 2 Career is an online, self-guided system that will help students identify potential majors and occupations that best suit their interests and skill sets. It will also help you identify the 8 career competencies that employers are seeking in interview candidates and new employees. You can take these assessment sections on your phone, tablet, or any device. Typically, the total time spent by students the first time they use the program is approximately 1.5 - 2 hours. Working through the program does not have to be done in one sitting. You can log back in at any time.
Please make an appointment through Handshake with a Career Coach to review your results when you are finished!
