Career Exploration

Career planning begins the moment a student enrolls at WWU. Students can visit the Office of Career Services to develop a plan of action for their time at WWU. We have tools to assist students in planning for the future and developing the objectives to reach their ultimate career goals.


FOCUS is William Woods University's online career and education planning tool. It is a self-paced career guidance tool to help you clarify your career goals. The assessments may help you to decide on your major, as well. FOCUS is available online 24/7. To optimize your use of FOCUS, be sure to:

Complete all of the Self Assessment section, discuss your results with your Academic Adviser, and schedule an appointment with the Office of Career Services to discuss your results and create an action plan.
