Career Exploration

Focus Career Exploration

Texas State Technical College Harlingen recently began offering Focus 2 to students to aid in the career exploration process. Focus 2 offers you a free self-paced guidance tool for self-assessment and career exploration. Open an online account, create a portfolio and bring your career into focus. Additionally, upon completion of a TSI Academic Success Plan, students will receive career counseling from their designated TSI advisor through completion of the Focus assessment.


You can explore careers by name, industry, or your area of study. You can also use this tool to compare careers.

Career Readiness

This part of Focus2 outlines your career goals, educational strengths and weaknesses, and areas where you need personal development. It also helps you keep track of where you are in reaching your career goals.

Self Assessment

You can take and re-take these self-assessments at any time. You can also review your assessment answers. The five assessments are

  • Work Interest Inventory
  • Personality
  • Skills
  • Work Values
  • Leisure Activities


This portion of Focus 2 combines your information from the other three areas into one place. Your information can be updated whenever you want.
