Career Exploration/FOCUS

Finding a career can be frustrating, confusing, exciting, and challenging

At the Career Center, we can help you gather information about career choices, sift through that information, devise a plan to prepare for your career, and guide you toward entering your future.

FOCUS 2 LogoOne of the best tools to identify career options is FOCUS, an online career exploration and planning system. It includes self-assessment quizzes, online research links, a career planning tutorial, links to research particular careers and even a way to compare between multiple career options.

To register for FOCUS, just visit the Career Center (Ground Floor, Alumni Hall). Registration with FOCUS is free and once you’re registered, you can use FOCUS whenever and wherever it’s convenient for you.
