How Can You Prepare for WorkKeys?

Career Ready 101 is a self-paced, self-directed computer software program that helps you assess your skill level before you take WorkKeys assessments and will help you to prepare for your future career. It was created as a tool to teach the concepts and build the skills needed to improve your score on your WorkKeys assessments. Career 101 begins with administering pretests that are given to measure the current skill level of each student in order to prescribe lessons that will assist each student on improving their scores on the WorkKeys assessments. All RVHS students have already taken these pretests. Students can work on these prescribed lessons on their own. The lessons will also assist students in creating career goals, increase their financial awareness, and develop soft skills such as working with a team, workplace discipline, and customer service.

Career 101 allows you to experience concepts, sample questions, and practice assessments at your own pace before you are in a timed assessment environment. It is an excellent practice tool that helps you become familiar with the material so you are better prepared to earn the score you want. By the time students finish the Career Ready 101 program, they will have created a Career portfolio that will include Interest Inventory reports, electronic versions of their resume, business letters including cover letters, thank you letters, and follow-up letters that can be used in a job search, as well as job interview tips and strategies.
