The Fleishman Center offers various career assessment options to assist you with your career planning. These tools can be an excellent place to start when making career choices such as choosing a major, exploring occupations, and determining a career plan.

Focus 2 has five brief career assessments—Work Interests, Personal Interests, Abilities, Values, and Personality inventories—and relates answers to all five to the world of work.

FOCUS 2 is helpful for:

  • Choosing a college major—helps you uncover career interests and identify which areas of study at Binghamton are suggested or required for a particular field based on Holland’s Career Development Theory
  • Exploring Career Options—helps you explore the world of work by demonstrating how your interests relate to various occupations
  • Taking responsibility for your education and career planning and engaging in activities that support your career development

Cost: FREE for Binghamton University Students
