WorkKeys Workshop Planned at SWOSU
October 6, 2005
A WorkKeys workshop will be held Thursday, October 13, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.
WorkKeys is an ACT job skills assessment program measuring real world skills that employers believe are critical to job success for any occupation, according to Jan Noble of the SWOSU Assessment Center. A growing number of employers are accepting or requiring that job applicants have WorkKeys scores and documentation, especially in the areas of math, reading and locating information.
The workshop at SWOSU will be held at 9 a.m. in the Al Harris Library Auditorium. The event is being sponsored by SWOSU and the Weatherford Leadership Class.
Noble said SWOSU is participating in a pilot program to make this assessment service available to area businesses, college students, high school students, and other individuals.
Additional information on WorkKeys is available at www.act.org/workkeys/index.html.
