UB Center for Career Development
Embraces the philosophy that career development is about acquiring the professional skills necessary to manage one’s career at any point along the continuum. We view our services as an integral educational component of the students’ academic program. Our services are geared toward preparing students to successfully assess themselves, research career options, acquire relevant work skills, and use effective tools as they transition to productive academic endeavors and satisfying employment. Through career exploration and experiential opportunities, students are challenged to expand their knowledge of themselves and the world of work in a dynamic, global community.

Focus2 combines self-assessment, career and major exploration, decision making and action planning in one comprehensive product. Focus2 guides students through a reliable career and education decision-making model to help you select majors, make informed career decisions and take action.
