Career Planning offers individual assistance for students who are trying to determine their career path. We use a variety of methods.
- "FOCUS" is an interactive program that can be used once you contact the Career Planning office to obtain a username and/or password. See the description below.
- We also offer a resource called "College, Knowledge, and Jobs" that connects majors to appropriate careers.
- You can also take Paper and Pencil Tests - (Self Directed Search), which can help you determine which careers you are suited for.
This program will help you develop an accurate picture of your personal strengths, needs and preferences; and will help you develop a sound career plan. At its core, FOCUS offers valid and reliable research based career assessments. Used exclusively by more than 1,500 career planning and placement offices nationwide.
