What you will do in a Career Focus Workshop

Workshops are generally two hours long, and you might want to schedule a follow-up, one-on-one visit with the facilitator. Here's what to expect:

  •  Sessions will take place on a computer, generally in a classroom setting.
  • The facilitator will take you through interactive activities that help you identify your values and set goals. You will also find resources and tools for career exploration and development.
  • Some of the activities include:
    • Strengthsquest® (developed by Gallup Inc.) will help you learn how your talents can help you develop personally and professionally.
    • The Myers Briggs Type Inventory explains different personality types and shows you how to relate to them in your daily life, whether at school, on a job, in a career, or in personal relationships.
    • Missouri Connections is a web-based, comprehensive career development system supported by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
