Minnesota employers can save time, money, and greatly increase the chance of finding workers with the right skills by giving preference to applicants who have earned the National Career Readiness Certificate.
Developed by ACT and used in more than 40 states, the NCRC verifies that prospective employees have the work-related knowledge and fundamental skills to be successful on the job, including:
Reading and using work-related text
Applying information from workplace documents to solve problems
Applying mathematical reasoning to work-related problems
Setting up and performing work-related mathematical calculations
Locating, synthesizing, and applying information presented graphically
Comparing, summarizing, and analyzing information presented in multiple related graphics
How to Begin
There are no additional costs to employers. Just ask job applicants to earn the NCRC and add the key words NCRC Preferred to your job descriptions.
