MCC professional counselors will help students determine their educational and career goals by assessing their interests, abilities and values.
To achieve that end, MCC offers students FOCUS 2, an online personalized career and educational planning system based on established career and counseling principles. It provides a complete picture of your interests, values, personality, skills, and leisure activities using self-assessment questionnaires, interest inventories, and personality testing. After assessing your personal attributes, the system searches its career and occupational information database to identity and analyze occupations and career paths that match your personal characteristics.
FOCUS 2 is available for use by all Muskegon Community College students and alumni.
To create an account, use the access code: Jayhawk.
Students will need to register with their muskegoncc.edu account.
