Focus 2

FOCUS 2 is designed to help college students assess and evaluate skills and interests to define career and educational goals.

Students take online assessments ranging from work interest to skills. These evaluations help pinpoint strengths to better match academic and career options.

Users may also evaluate career readiness by listing career/educational goals, academic strengths and work experience. Other tools available allow students to research careers by comparing majors, explore occupations by industry, and seek out jobs or internship opportunities.
