Help for Students and Alumni
Freshmen and Sophomores
FOCUS-2 can help you select majors and consolidate career goals. Work on as many sections as you can in both the 'Career Readiness' and 'Self Assessment' categories. If you are trying to select your major, we highly recommend the 'Academic Strengths' section, as well as the 5 sections in the 'Self Assessment' category.
Juniors, Seniors, and Alumni
FOCUS-2 can help you plan your job and/or graduate school search. Start with the 'Your Career Planning Status' in the 'Career Readiness' category. If your scores are in the medium or low range, we highly recommend you complete the 5 sections in the 'Self Assessment' category.
Click on the ‘Combine the Results of Multiple Assessments’ to see how all of your results work together. This will generate a list of occupations related to your assessment results. Once you have an understanding of your interests, personality, skills, values & leisure interests, use the ‘Explore the Possibilities’ section to research potential careers. This section provides information about each career, including educational background and salary information. You can also complete a side-by-side comparison of careers.
If you would like, you can consolidate all of your reports into a portfolio in the ‘Personal Portfolio’ section. We recommend you do this step if you have completed most or all of the assessment sections. If you have only taken one or two sections, it may not be necessary.
