WOWI Career Assessment and Counseling
with Lynn Sheehan
The WOWI (World of Work Inventory) Career Assessment takes into account your skills, interests, and work style.

Together we will Assess, Explore and Plan your future!
This WOWI service is kept free for you due to the generosity of a grant through the Maine Department of Education. Please complete this brief survey for the DOE and the WOWI is free. If you’d rather not, then the cost is $75.
The counseling time can be in person at the York Adult Education or livestreamed on your computer.
