Self-Guided Career Exploration
Focus 2 Career is an interactive self-assessment and career exploration tool that will help you learn more about yourself and your career options. It will help you identify occupations that are likely to be a good fit for your interests, values, personality and skills.
There is no time limit for using Focus 2 Career, but plan to spend about 30-60 minutes completing the self-assessment tools. You can use the site as many times as you wish, and in any order. Your results will be saved in your Focus 2 Career account, and you can repeat any sections previously completed.

3. Self Assessment
The assessment tools in Focus 2 Career have been developed to identify occupations and majors that match your personal attributes. Each one will ask you to rate or prioritize your preferences for Work Interests, Values, Personality, or Skills. Complete all four of the assessments, or the specific ones indicated by your career advisor.

- Click on the home icon to return to the main page when you are finished with each module.
- After completing 2 or more of the assessments, you can use the Combine Assessments function to see which occupations and majors match more than 1 of your assessments.
4. Explore the Possibilities
For additional exploration, Focus 2 Career offers several other tools for learning more about occupations and majors, including the specific academic programs available at UW-Green Bay.
5. Make an Appointment
After completing the assessments and exploring the related careers and majors, you should make an appointment with a career advisor at UW-Green Bay. A Career Services staff member can help you make sense of your results, explain what the assessments mean, and provide you with additional resources.
