How does the certificate fit into the

employers’ existing hiring practices

Certificates provide an additional data

point to make employment decisions. If an

employer is already using one or more of

the WorkKeys assessments, applicants with

a certificate may be able to skip those tests,

resulting in cost savings for the employer.

In other cases, an employer may ask for

certificate results to reduce hiring time and

costs.

WorkKeys is ideally suited for the National

Career Readiness Certificate because the

system is:

• Meaningful to employers, individuals,

educators, and trainers

• Based on work skill levels documented

by the national occupational database

• Built on objective, standardized, valid

assessment results

• Linked to education/training

programs to improve skill levels

• Designed to provide nationwide

portability

• Developed by ACT, an internationally

recognized measurement and

research company

• Available for immediate use
