Career Exploration Tools

Major & Career Exploration Tools

The Center for Internships and Career Development recognizes that choosing a major or occupation is often one of the first career decisions you will need to make as you journey down the road to employment.  We understand making this choice can be exciting, but also challenging.  We are pleased to make available to you several different tools to help you on this journey:

Unsure of Your Major?

We recommend you utilize Focus 2, a professional assessment and exploration tool which allows you to explore majors and occupations of interest to you!  On your initial use of Focus 2, you will need to REGISTER.  When registering, you will need to use the ACCESS CODE: warrior.
