Here are a few key points to remember:
- We strongly recommend that you go over your FOCUS results with an IPFW Career Counselor A Career Counselor can help you sort out the many questions and possibilities that may arise during your career exploration process. Call 260-481-0689 for an appointment.
- FOCUS is not a "test" - there are no right or wrong answers, only your own personal preferences, to be explored and clarified.
- In a similar vein, FOCUS cannot provide "the answers" for you. All it can do is help you identify patterns from your responses, and suggest some careers that may match your interests, skills and work-related values.
- Instructions for completing the FOCUS assessment. Please follow these instructions and bring results to your appointment with a career counselor.
