FOCUS 2 Career Assessment

Accessible anywhere and anytime, FOCUS-2® is an easy-to-use online career self-assessment system that can help you explore your values, interests, personality and skills and their relation to possible majors or careers. FOCUS-2® provides links to more than 800 career possibilities, including video links to more than 300 careers.  


Things to Know Before You Get Started

  • You do not have to complete every section. In fact, we generally recommend the self-assessments (i.e., interests, skills, personality, and values) and "What Can I Do with a Major In . . ." (located under Explore the Possibilities). Complete whatever inventories provide the information you desire.

  • Self-assessments are not tests. There are not right or wrong answers. Try not to spend too long on each item.

  • You can exit and return to the program at any time. Each section takes 10 to 15 minutes. 

  • When you are finished with the assessments, it will generate a list of careers that match your responses. Review the list and save the occupations that interest you most. You may also use the “combine the results from multiple assessments” to view careers that best correspond to your profile.

  • Do not use the back button in your browser. It will exit the system.

  • We also encourage you to schedule an appointment with a Student Success Advisor to review your results and learn about other valuable resources. To arrange this conversation, simply contact the Student Success Center ( | 605.274.4127).
