Session Description:

This session will be in digital format by completing Focus 2 (an online career exploration and major selection system).

The assessments are divided into categories related to work interests, personality, skills, values, and leisure activities. Focus 2 will formulate a list of careers/majors that may be of interest based on the results provided.
