Select a Major with New Career Advising System
PHSC recently added FOCUS 2, an online, interactive career advising system to improve the career development process for students. The free self-paced career guidance tool combines self-assessment, career and major exploration, decision making and action planning in one comprehensive program. Designed to help students explore their values, interests, personality and skills, the assessment tool meets new state legislative requirements for major/meta-major selection.
“FOCUS 2 facilitates goal setting, academic decision making and course selection to increase student commitment, motivation and the probability of retention,” said Jackie Eden, Assistant Director of Career and Testing Services. “Many freshmen are unsure of how to combine their interests and skills into selecting a major or determining a career path. FOCUS 2 can move students forward in planning suitable careers and provide results-oriented goals.”
FOCUS 2 is accessible to all students and alumni and available anytime online for most devices. As interests and skills expand, career assessment results may change so students are encouraged to reassess periodically. Individual FOCUS 2 results are saved in a digital career portfolio for future reference.
FOCUS 2 is ACSCI (Association for Computer-Based Systems for Career Information) certified and meets the standards and criteria established by the National Career Development Association and the U. S. Department of Labor.

Concept College Program Receives Grant
PHSC Foundation recently received a grant of $5,000 from the Rays Baseball Foundation Community Fund Grant Program. The funds will support PHSC’s Concept College outreach program that provides an opportunity for at-risk students to explore a variety of career pathways and encourages participants to attend college. PHSC’s Concept College serves disadvantaged Pasco and Hernando County students who are likely to drop out of school or have little expectation of enrolling or graduating from college.
The PHSC Foundation was one of twenty non-profit organizations to receive a grant through the Community Fund Grant Program. The Rays Foundation presented the award to PHSC Foundation Board Vice Chair, George “Skip” Miller and PHSC Director of Development, Maria Hixon at a banquet held at Tropicana Field on June 6.
