This year's Conway Career Center Interns have earned their Career Readiness Certificates.
Thirteen interns from CHS recently earned the certificates.
The Arkansas Career Readiness Certification (CRC) is being promoted through the governor’s office and the Arkansas Department of Workforce Services in an effort to ensure that a newly hired employee has the skills required for 21st century jobs.
The CRC certifies that a person has core employability skills required across multiple industries and occupations. The certificate will help distinguish job seekers from the competition and help them enhance their workplace skills. Arkansas has joined twenty other states who have implemented the certification as a part of workforce development.
The interns participated in KeyTrain instruction during the fall semester. This instruction included targeted, self-paced instruction in three areas: Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, and Locating Information. This determined their eligibility to take the WorkKeys assessments.
Interns Robyn Burnett, Kensington Chenoweth, Ethan Dresser, Sam McCormack, and LaRissa Sherman earned the “Gold” level of certification. This means that they have core employability skills for 90% of jobs profiled by WorkKeys.
The following students earned “Silver” level certification: Nathaniel Caldwell, Emma Cook, Ethan Dolan, Charis Lancaster, Erin McCoy, Ryan McPherson, and Austin Schichtl. This level shows that they have core employability skills for approximately 65% of jobs profiled by WorkKeys.
Sammie Ho earned the “Bronze” level of certification, which means that he has employability skills for 30% of the jobs profiled by WorkKeys.
