The first step in selecting a major/career is gathering information about yourself. A clear understanding of your strengths, interests, personality and values will help you to identify and evaluate career and major options.

FOCUS 2 is a free career planning resource with brief assessments that can help you get to know yourself better. From there you'll be better prepared to decide on a major or career direction. Create a new account using the access code (hawkowl) and your NMC ID with the link below.
