Focus2 is a free, online career assessment tool provided by Gateway Community and Technical College’s Career Services office to prospective and current Gateway students. Research has shown there are benefits to completing a career assessment tool and career planning. It can lead to a student being more motivated, getting better grades, staying in college and taking less time to graduate because they are more focused on their career and educational goals.
