Thursday, November 3, 2016 iEarning a Career iCertificate ',: Earning a Career :Readiness Certificate by 3aking ACT's WorkKeys® "assessment is part of the :curriculum offered by ;Southwest Regional Adult :Education. One may ask, ',"Why do I need a Career 'Readiness Certificate i(CRC) in Virginia?" J Virginia businesses ~compete in a global mar- ~ketplace and must deliver ~the highest quality of ~goods and services at the ,most economical price. In ~order for businesses to do ~this, they must hire the ~most capable and produc- ~tive employees available to form their workforce. iWorkplace skill is impor- tant criteria for determin- ing who is hired, promoted, or in some cases, separat- ed. Individuals who seek employment must effec- tively communicate to potential employers the skills and abilities they offer. The CRC serves both the needs of the employer and job-seekers. The CRC and its foun- dational WorkKeys® sys- tem provide the employer a complete solution for applicant screening, employee selection, and skills development. The certificate will inform the hiring authority of a candi- date's current skills and the ,likelihood of job-related training being fully suc- cessful. GED® certificates, high school diplomas, and even some college degrees cannot really "certify" that an individual has a certain workplace skill set. A CRC guarantees that an individ- ual can demonstrate the level of skills documented. In a highly competitive job market, job seekers need to take advantage of every opportunity that gives them that edge above the rest. Virginia's CRC is a nationally recognized credential that can give the job seeker that edge. Job seekers often get frustrated after looking for a job for several weeks and they complain that there are no jobs. The reality is that there are jobs available but employers are unable to hire because applicants who meet the qualifica- tions are difficult to find. There is a gap between what employers need and the skills possessed by the individuals who are seek- ing employment. The WorkKeys® System, on which the CRC is based, is a tool that can be used to help applicants identify the required skills that are needed for the jobs in which they are interest- ed. The assessments that constitute the CRC (Applied Mathematics, .iness Reading for Information, and Locating Information) • are workforce-based; therefore, the questions are based on situations that might occur in an everyday work environment. The results of the assessments can be used to identify the difference between skills needed and skills possessed. If it is determined that there is a gap, the gap can be addressed by using KeyTrain®, an online self- paced tutorial program that facilitates the user in gain- ing the skills necessary to qualify for the job of his/her choice. An appli- cant needs to retest only in the area of the skill deficit and then earn the level cer- tificate needed to qualify for the job of choice.

It was at WNBA Norton, Virginia. One Sunday morning I had went to church before going to the radio station that afternoon. The road was bad down to the church and I drug the muf- fler off of my car. Well, I guessed that would mean that I couldn't go to the radio program that day. But I knew an old boy named Cecil Scarberry and he reach me the keys to his Buick and said, "You go on and do your radio program and I will put your muffler on your car by the time you get back this afternoon." Well, that was a couple of miles down the road and I got to the phone• and called back to the garage just in time to get a hold of the wrecker driver before closing. I told him to bring me another car and pick up the one that had broken down. I always left early so I had plenty of time and about an hour later he arrived at the scene. I thanked the lady that gave me a ride and I offered to pay her. She said, "Well, I've always had an old car that wasn't no good and wore out and I've broke down beside the road, ran out of gas and dif- ]r _ _ 1 1/2 tsp. onion powder berries. Beat one minute, interest... And he did. A few years ferent things. People would : 1 1/2 tsp. paprika Serve with graham crack- went by and I was going to just drive on by. I told the ' auctioneer a car sale in Lord that if He would anybodY I could along the way. That's why I turned around to give you a ride." She was driving a brand new automobile. She said, "The Lord blessed me to have this car so I could help others." You know, there's a pur- pose for all of us being here and we sometimes never find that purpose. This is not the Bible, but it is a saying that used to be the Golden Rule of the Highway, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," and that's always been my motto. Just try to help somebody that's in need, whether they be a , hitchhiker, broke down beside the road or lost without Jesus, I'll be there Meetings Of the West Jefferson, North make a way for me to get a for them.
