What is WorkKeys?
WorkKeys is a job skills assessment system measuring "real-world" skills that employers believe are critical to job success. Scores help you compare your skills to the skills real jobs require. WorkKeys test questions are based on situations in the everyday work world. Employers across the country are requiring the WorkKeys assessments or recommending the National Career Readiness Certificate. These scores help employers choose the most qualified candidates for their jobs.
Why should you care about the WorkKeys tests?
All students enter the workforce eventually—whether they get a job right out of high school, work part-time while continuing their education, or go to college first. The WorkKeys system stresses skills development important for every type of employment. WorkKeys job analyses are conducted for a wide range of jobs across the U.S. economy, from jobs that require short-term on-the-job training to those requiring a bachelor’s degree or higher.
