Featured Resource

Focus2 is a brand-new FREE tool introduced by the MU Career Center this year for ALL students – all you need is a PawPrint and your password!  Focus2, which can be accessed on our website, offers unique tools and information to provide assistance in educational and career related explorations. It offers helpful features that are useful no matter what phase students are at in the planning process.

There are six separate assessments that can be explored in any order and completed as many times as desired. Along with the results of each assessment, students are provided with a multitude of corresponding majors and occupations. We hope it serves as an interactive, self-paced component added to our multitude of resources for students. Learn more about the Focus2 and all it has to offer in this blog post!
