Incorporating the World of Work Inventory as an essential tool for mining crucial vocational information, has proven to be insightful and empowering. Its utilization in vocational assessment brings a level of sophistication, yet maintains its simplicity and succinctness in career planning and important discussions of vocational direction and support, with the clients our agency serves.

—Jonathan Utrera, VR Counselor, Washington Department of Services for the Blind (DSB)

The WOWI comes complete. It is a more functional assessment having aptitude, work style, and career interests in one assessment rather than piecing together separate inventories. The WOWI gives us a great tool to work with as we help students find their path.

—Lee Rose, Adult Education Instructor, Axiom Education & Training Center (AETC)

We like the WOWI because it assesses so many different aspects of the individual’s interests, aptitudes, and personality to generate career options. It is not timed so can be used for clients who read slower or have dexterity issues such as individuals with Cerebral Palsy (CP).

—Becki Hoff, Regional Administrator, North Dakota Division of Vocation Rehabilitation (DVR)

The WOWI website is user-friendly and easy to administer. We have many customers who are unsure about their career paths and are looking for assistance in determining which direction to take. It’s exciting to have a tool available that may be so helpful in meeting this need.

—Jason Warfle, Job Center Supervisor, Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development (DOLWD)
