Individual Career Seeker Resources

WHAT ARE THE WORKKEYS RESOURCES AVAILABLE FOR INDIVIDUAL CAREER SEEKERS?

Taking WorkKeys assessments is an important first step to prepare for education, training, or a career. The assessment questions are based on situations in the daily work world. WorkKeys scores help compare individual skills to the skills real jobs require. Employers are requiring the WorkKeys assessments or recommending the National Readiness Certificate.

WHAT IS THE NATIONAL READINESS CERTIFICATE AND HOW DOES IT HELP AN INDIVIDUAL CAREER SEEKER?

Sample National Career Readiness CertificateEmployers across the country report that they are often overwhelmed by stacks of applications for only a handful of open positions. Sifting through these applications is time-consuming and inefficient. Employers need a way to quickly pinpoint individuals with essential, verifiable workplace skills. That’s why they’re asking applicants to earn a National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC™). This certificate proves that you have the skills needed for the job. The certificate is issued by ACT and recognized by companies throughout the country. Take the first key step toward proving your workplace skills by earning the National Career Readiness Certificate.
