Learn how WorkKeys can
BENEFIT Employees and Job Candidates?

WorkKeys is a job skills assessment system in the nation, measuring “real world” foundational skills that are critical to job success. These skills are valuable for any occupation — skilled or professional — and at any level of education. Employers use the system to determine hiring qualifications and training needs. WorkKeys measures work skills in Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, Applied Technology, Writing, Listening, Teamwork and Observation. These skills are needed at some level in almost every job, occupation or career in today's economy.



Career Readiness Certificates

National Career Readiness Certificates Logo Certify your Skills by
EARNING a NEW CREDENTIAL, the Career Readiness Certificates (CRC) and instantly become MORE COMPETIVE!

The portable credential — powered by WorkKeys — verifies to employers anywhere in the United States that an individual has essential core employability skills in Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics and Locating Information.

The CRC provides EMPLOYERS and JOB CANDIDATES with a measurement tool for ASSESSING WORKFORCE SKILLS to match the RIGHT PEOPLE in the RIGHT JOBS!

There is great concern in the private sector about the gap that exists between the skills required in today's workplace and those exhibited by potential and incumbent employees. Businesses have trouble finding and hiring people who have basic employable skills and who are therefore trainable for specific jobs. The Career Readiness Certificate is a portable skills credential, assuring employers that a job applicant actually has the basic skills they seek.
