A Web-based Career & Educational Planning System that can help you make career decisions, choose an academic major, and map out your career and/or educational plans. If you are selecting a major, looking for career options related to your major, or are seeking a career change, you will benefit from using this system.
Use the FOCUS Career & Educational Planning System to:
- Assess your current status and career planning needs.
- Assess your interests, values, skills, personality type and lifestyle to develop a personal profile or picture of who you are and what you are seeking in a career.
- Identify and explore occupations and career fields that are compatible with your personal profile.
- Discover and learn more about educational programs and other developmental activities that will help you achieve your career goals.
- With all of this information, you will be able to develop realistic career goals and map out a plan of action that will help you achieve your goals.
FOCUS is a Free Service offered to all BU students and alumni. Simply contact Career Coaching with your full name, student ID number or social security number, phone number and email address. We’ll provide the access code to get you started.
After you log in, just follow the directions to navigate through the system. The system will keep track of your progress by placing checkmarks by each completed phase on the Main Menu. If you don't have time to complete the entire program in one session, don't worry. You can return anytime to continue through the system. You can also print reports at the prompts after completing each phase or by using the red button marked Reports at the bottom of the Main Menu. Be sure to keep these reports, as they will be very helpful in your career planning and decision-making.
We encourage you to use the system as often as needed to update your profile, gain new career information and make sure you stay on track with your career planning.
We also encourage you to meet with a Career Coach after using the system, to discuss your results and answer any questions you might have. If you are unable to meet with us in person, we can do this via phone (800-756-7920, Ext. 557-7423) or email.
