Login to FOCUS Career Planning System
FOCUS is one of the top three career planning systems in the USA according to the National Association of Colleges & Employers (NACE), and is currently used in over one thousand career service centers in community and state agencies, schools, colleges, universities, and technical institutes nationwide. FOCUS helps our career advisors provide you with personalized career planning and career guidance information services. It will help you broaden your career horizons and map out career and educational goals and plans.
This system is based on established career counseling principles. It provides you with a complete picture of your interests, values, personality, skills, and leisure activities using self-assessment questionnaires, interest inventories and personality testing. After you have assessed your personal attributes, the system searches its career and occupational information database to help you identify and analyze occupations and career paths that match your personal characteristics.
FOCUS is free for Westminster College students. Simply contact the Career Center at extension 7338 to receive an access code for registering.
