Self Assessments

Self-assessment is a process by which you learn more about yourself -- what you like, what you don't like, and how you tend to react to certain situations. Knowing these things can help you determine what occupations might fit you better than others and what kind of work situation might work better for you.

Use a computer to self-assess careers compatible with your interests, values, skills, and experiences:

  • FOCUS2 - a self-paced, online career guidance tool used to assist you in self-assessment and career exploration. Users of FOCUS learn to make more realistic decisions about their goals and plans, how to self-manage their careers and the importance of adaptability in these times of change.
