WOWI helps you understand what excites and appeals to you and what careers are connected to your interests. By matching your assessment results to the requirements of the many available careers, WOWI will compile a personalized list of occupations that best compliment your unique profile. From that list you can begin to more fully explore the careers that are most appealing to you.
Your occupational goals and your educational goals should correspond to one another. Reaching your occupational goals will usually be dependent upon reaching your educational goals. By deciding on your occupational choices, or at least narrowing your choices, you will be able to research the education required to make you the most marketable. It may be that your WOWI®Direct career profile just verifies that you are on the right path, but that can be extremely reassuring. Or, based on your research, you may decide to readjust your goals.
Experts estimate that 80% of college bound students haven’t chosen a major. The WOWI is also a tool for helping undecided students find the right program of study. Starting college with a declared major, one that you are confident about, saves time, money and will improve your college experience. Studies validate that choosing the right major early in your academic career usually improves academic, financial and professional success.
