IU South Bend students interested in exploring their career path must first contact the Career Services Office to schedule an initial appointment and receive an access code, in order to create a Focus2 Career Assessments account. After taking the assessments online the student will go over the results with a career counselor.
Alumni and community members may take the assessments for a nominal fee. Please contact Career Services for more information.
Career Assessments Links on the Web
The following are links that offer free career assessment testing on the web. You do not need to be an IU South Bend student to take these assessments and results are immediately given to you upon completion.
Your CSO appointment is your opportunity to ask questions and narrow your choices. Be prepared to discuss questions about each of the assessment modules, which of your goals suit you best, and any obstacles to those goals that may exist. The counselor will give you information to assist you to formulate your long-term plan, identify your educational needs, draft an action plan, and suggest strategies for dealing with obstacles.
Now that you have a good idea of your career goal; it’s time to start talking to more folks. The more information you get, the better off you will be. Make appointments with the academic advisor from 2 or 3 areas that interest you. Ask them questions about specific careers within that major. They can assist with investigating your options.

Choose a Major!
When you change your major - even from undecided to a specific major and back again - have your academic school send an Academic Objective Update to the Registrar’s Office to make each Major change official.
