FOCUS 2 is an online system that helps you identify majors, advanced degrees, and career options that may be a good fit, and provides you with tools to explore those options. While your exploration can be completely self-directed, you will get the most out of the experience by working with a career advisor.

 

 

KEEP IN MIND:


This self-directed system is NOT designed to tell you what to major in or what career to pursue. It is a tool that can help you to narrow options, provide insight, and develop an action plan.


  • Use FOCUS 2 online anywhere, anytime, as often as you wish.
  • Use the FOCUS 2 features in any order.
  • Save the majors and occupations that appeal to you as you review them.
  • Share your results with a career advisor.
  • The assessments on FOCUS 2 are designed to be quick and easy to use, which means they may not capture the complexity of your individual situation. For more in depth assessments and insights, make an appointment with a career advisor.
  • Your results are stored online and are always available to you. And you can change your mind, or repeat a section.
