  • What is FOCUS?

    • Focus-2 is a self-paced, online career and education planning tool. This interactive program helps you determine your interests, values, preferences and skills, and provides suggested career paths and major areas of study that are most compatible with your individual results.

    • Students at all levels of the career development process, from undeclared students to seniors as well as alumni considering the next step in their career, will benefit from this comprehensive program.

    How much time does it take?

    • We suggest you begin with Self-Assessment.  You do not have to complete every section. Select the ones that best meet your needs. You can exit and return to the program at any time. Each section takes 10 to 15 minutes; the whole program takes about 2 hours to complete, although you can spend additional time researching different occupational choices and viewing over 300 career videos.
