Job Test for Skills Very Useful


More than 4400 Oregonians have taken advantage of a national program that tests job seekers for essential work skills, such as math, reading and information comprehension. Camille Preus, Commissioner for the Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development says it gives workers a leg up in the applicant pool. “The assessment says whether an individual has those basic career-readiness skills in those three areas or not. And you can’t fake it.” Preus says the tests will also strengthen Oregon’s workforce; helping the State recruit new employers. The Employment Department is currently covering the costs of the national career readiness certificate testing for unemployed Oregonians.
