Detailed Career Services Overview & FOCUS 2 Career Assessment
35-45 Minutes

This presentation would provide an in depth overview to career resources and services at the Career Center plus an introduction to the new FOCUS 2 Career Assessment Tool (more information coming soon!). In order for your students to get the most from this presentation, they should plan to complete the new FOCUS 2 assessment through the Career Center website prior to the date of your presentation. During the presentation, your counselor will provide an overview of this tool, including how students can benefit from learning more about themselves through the five career related assessments, how to explore UVA majors and over 1,000 corresponding occupations, as well as discuss Career Center resources and opportunities for students to explore their career interests further. 

Brief Introduction of Career Services

For this presentation, one of our counselors or Career Peer Educators will provide a brief overview of “What the Career Center Can Do for You.” Students are encouraged to connect with the Career Center following this presentation for more in depth information regarding services that best fit their needs.


If neither of the above presentation options fit with your syllabus requirements, please don’t hesitate to let us know if there are other topics you would like us to discuss with your students.

Example: A presentation focusing on pre-health requirements, or a similar industry specific program,  and resources for students interested in these paths.
