What Is FOCUS (Self-Assessment Tool)?

FOCUS, an online career and education planning tool, will help you identify your educational and occupational goals by connecting your interests, talents, and personality to a variety of OSU majors and careers. Within FOCUS, you will find six short sections of questions, each covering an important step in the career planning process:


Once you answer the questions, FOCUS scores and summarizes your results in a personal profile that you can save, print out, and use to explore and compare occupations.

To help you in cataloging all of this information, we have created a FOCUS Job Aid linked here.

Please print this page so you can record the information you receive from FOCUS and use it in the next lesson on relating interests to majors and careers.
