FOCUS 2: Career Exploration

This workshop will introduce you to an important tool in the career exploration process.  In this workshop, you will learn about and use an online assessment designed to help you explore jobs within your career field, learn more about your options in terms of careers, and open up other options that you maybe didn't know existed.  Everyone can benefit from learning more about their career options, but this workshop is especially beneficial for new students, undeclared students, or those who are wanting to learn more about their interests and personality and how this fits into picking a career you will love.
