FOCUS - Career and Education Planning Solutions
FOCUS is a self-guided, career self-assessment computer program that can be used on any computer with Internet access. It helps you identify your educational and occupational goals based upon your interests, talents, and personality and then links you to careers. It is one of the most widely used career planning systems in the USA and has been used in career service centers nationwide for more than 12 years.
What Does FOCUS Include?
FOCUS consists of six short sections of questions, each covering an important step in the career planning process:
Once you answer the questions, FOCUS scores and summarizes your results in a personal profile that you can use to explore and compare occupations. You can complete the questions at your own pace since FOCUS stores your information in a confidential file---ready for use whenever you are.

See attached information for more details on what FOCUS can do for you.
