Breanna, third-year Chemical Engineering student

I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I was in high school. Having now taken the CareerFocus Assessment, I’m happy to see ‘Chemical Engineer’ and ‘Biologist’ are my top three recommended career options. The CareerFocus Assessment was unlike any career test I had taken in high school. What a reassurance to know I’m exactly where I should be.

Kevin + Diane

Our daughter was struggling with her decision to apply for an Engineering degree. She knew she liked math and science but she did not know much about Engineering and whether it was a good fit for her. It was helpful being able to speak to someone directly to understand the report in more depth and to discuss the various options and choices available both now and in the future. Overall it was a positive experience and well worth the investment.
