Fifteen interns from CHS recently earned National Career Readiness Certificates. The Arkansas 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.
Paige Ashcraft, Ethan Beard, Blaine Booher, Melodie Moore, and JT Toal 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: Rachel Battisto, Rileigh Bush, D’Nea Coats, Sean Emerson, Lars Jesperson, Baylea Johnson, Mica Walter, and Kendra Wooley. This level shows that they have core employability skills for approximately 65% of jobs profiled by WorkKeys.
Alondria Benton and Makaila Payne earned the “Bronze” level of certification, which means that he has employability skills for 30% of the jobs profiled by WorkKeys.
