FOCUS 2 Career Assessment Tool

NEW online career and education planning system that will help you make informed decisions about your future. It can be useful at any point in your career development.

How will FOCUS 2 help me make decisions?
Understanding yourself is one of the most important aspects of figuring out what you want to do with your life. FOCUS 2 is broken down into four sections that help you understand yourself and how your interests, abilities, values and personality correspond to specific careers:

  • CAREER READINESS: Answer questions to get started thinking about your career.
  • SELF ASSESSMENT: Take assessments that match your answers to UAlbany majors and careers. Gain the most out of the system by taking all five self-assessments.
  • EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITIES: Search and save occupations associated with majors, or compare two careers side by side,
  • CREATE AN ACTION PLAN: Focus ideas and decide on steps to achieve your goals.
