Career Readiness Certificate (CRC)

The CRC:

  • Focuses on employment related competencies needed in any career
  • Is used by employers to assess skills for employment and promotion
  • Is used by job seekers to show employers that their skills are certified
  • Serves as a portable credential that can be more meaningful to employers than a high school degree or a resume citing experience in a different job setting


The CRC is based upon WorkKeys, a nationally recognized system of job profiling, assessment and instructional support. Employers use this system to take the guesswork out of identifying the right applicant for a job. Individuals that earn a Career Readiness Certificate confirm to employers that they possess the work skills to complete a job.
