How does TypeFocus Careers Work?

This program assesses personality type and generates three customized reports, which help people understand themselves better so they can choose more effective career strategies. Each user sets up his/her own username and password, which guarantees confidentiality.

As the user works through the reports, information from one section is automatically incorporated into the next section. For example, when a user identifies a career they are interested in within the career choice section, the program will also save the educational requirements needed for this career within the education section.

Besides saving information, the program is interactive. Users add their own information, (e.g., values, skills, focus) which is stored and automatically incorporated into their reports. Eventually the user has a set of three reports that form a holistic approach to self-awareness and career success.

The program is flexible and easily allows users to re-assess their personality or change it so it fits with their self-perception. Facilitator manuals ensure that the program is implemented effectively.
