The Career Readiness Certificate is a valuable tool for career seekers because it helps them to assess their own abilities and identify their strengths, thus making them more marketable to employers and giving them an edge over the competition. On the other hand, the WorkKeys® exam can also help job seekers identify areas in which they could strengthen their skills, thus allowing them to more efficiently utilize educational resources in order to make themselves even stronger competitors.
The level of certification a person achieves also helps them to compare their skills to the skills required to fulfill the duties of the position they are applying for. The applicant can be confident that she/he will be able to live up to the requirements of the job.
