TypeFocus Instructions

  • On the opening page enter in all of your information and create a password
  • For the Access Code, contact your counselor or FYE instructor.
  • Upon entering the site, click on "short preview" link and watch the video, then click on "Step 1: Self Assessmets."
  • You will then be able to take the Personality, Interests, Skills and Values assessments (4 different tests).
  • After all tests have been completed, click on the Step 2: Explore” tab at the top of the page.
  • You will be taken to the “Assessment Results” page.
  • Look at the results of each assessment test separately and note careers of interest to them in each assessment.
  • Pay particular attention to the careers that come up on the "Interest" inventory. Interest should be primary in your consideration of a career. If your personality and values match with a career but not your interest, you will probably not be happy with it. So, make sure that you check the Interest results first and view the Personality and Values as supplemental to the Interests.
  • Note that there is a "view more" button at the bottom of the page. Click this to see more occupations that match your profile.
  • If you have questions, contact Career Services for an appoinement.
