The World of Work Inventory (WOWi) is a comprehensive career assessment instrument, which has been carefully constructed to help a person learn the most about him or herself in relation to the wide variety of occupations available. The WOWi provides a personalized profile for each person. As a result, you will receive a listing of occupations most suitable to your unique combination of personality, interests and skills. If you are uncertain about what career you should be in, if you are considering a career change, or thinking of going back to school, the WOWI Online can help you explore your options, so you can make the best and most informed career decisions. Finding the right line of work is not always easy.
