Career Development Center: For Alumni

Update to Alumni Access:
As of October 1, 2021, access to career advising for most alumni is being focused to only winter and summer breaks for 2021-2022. Please bear with us as we focus our efforts on responding to the ever-changing needs of our current students in these unusual times.

FOCUS online assessment helps individuals in career transition to develop an accurate picture of their personal strengths, needs and preferences. Whether you are exploring education or career paths, this can help you discover and explore options that match your interests, personality, values and skills.
On average, approximately 40 minutes, you can spend additional time researching different occupational choices, and checking out the 300+ occupational videos. A great deal of career-related information can be found in this assessment, and we encourage you to review it as many times as you wish. You do not have to do the assessment all at once. You can log back on to FOCUS at any time.
To optimize your use of FOCUS, be sure to "Combine Your Assessment Results" to narrow and refine your exploration of education and career fields based on all of your FOCUS assessment results. Remember that the system is case sensitive.
Our services are just a phone call away at (508) 565-1325, or contact us via email at email@example.com.
Monday - Friday 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
