Whether you’re thinking about the next phase of your education, launching a new career, or making a transition in your current job, the ACT WorkKeys is an important first step to prepare.

Your test scores help you compare your skills to the skills real jobs require.

ACT WorkKeys assessment questions are based on situations in the everyday work world. That’s why employers nationwide require these tests or ask applicants for the ACT WorkKeys National Career Readiness Certificate® (NCRC®) to help them hire, train, and promote the most qualified candidates. The ACT WorkKeys NCRC is awarded on the basis of individuals’ ACT WorkKeys test scores and is the most widely used employability credential in the country.

Students, job seekers, and currently employed workers should focus on building these essential job skills— the skills that form the foundation of training and job performance and those most sought by employers, according to ACT® research.
