What is WorkKeys®
WorkKeys is a job skills assessment system measuring “real world” skills that employers believe are critical to job success. These skills are valuable to any occupation you are considering and at any level of education. When you use WorkKeys to show you are ready for work, you have an advantage with employers who accept or require job applicants to have WorkKeys scores. A growing number of states nationwide also are adopting WorkKeys to ensure that all their workers have needed skills.
The West Virginia Career Readiness Certificate ensures that an individual has certain foundational skills that are important across a range of occupations. The WV CRC offers individuals, employers and educators an easily understood, conveniently attained and universally valued credential that will contribute to the state’s workforce and economic development objectives.
Recipients are awarded certificates of Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze depending on their skill levels in Applied Mathematics, Reading for Information and Locating Information. The certificate can complement diplomas, degrees, and resumes, and it gives job seekers an advantage in the interview process.
