Once I received my FOCUS 2 results, I was not surprised at all. My results are consistent with my career goals. My major is in Exercise Science, once I get my bachelor’s degree I then plan to go to physical therapy school to get my doctorate’s degree in physical therapy. There are some occupations that were listed that I have thought about doing that proved to be a good fit such as a Social Worker, an Educational Therapist, a Health Educator, or a Middle School Teacher.

I sort of always knew that I wanted to work with people but the FOCUS 2 results that I received basically told that I should go into a career that allows me to work with others. Most of the careers that were listed involve me working with people and helping people.

My career goals for the next semester are to figure out what is it that I want to do in life, figure out what it is that I am passionate about, and whether or not I want to be a physical therapist.
