Focus 2 consists of 5 valid and reliable assessments: Work Interests, Personality, Leisure Interests, Values, and Skills. You will be given results once you have completed each assessment. Once you have finished all assessments, you can see your results from all 5 assessments combined. See below:


As you explore the occupations you are matched to based on your results, make sure to save those occupations of particular interest. Each occupation will show you what you would need to major in at ULM in order to lead you to that career path. Make sure and save your majors of interest as well.

You can also utilize the "Explore the Possibilities" section to view what you can do with certain majors, review occupation descriptions, and compare 2 occupations side by side. See below:


In addition to the 5 self assessments, you can complete other items to add to your portfolio at the end.
