What is WorkKeys?
Lifelong Learning offers classes to prepare for the WorkKeys Test.
WorkKeys® is an employment skills assessment system. Employers use WorkKeys® to measure workplace skills of employees and job
applicants. Schools and colleges also use WorkKeys® to prepare students for the workplace.
WorkKeys® is made up of several assessment tests that measure
different kinds of employment-related skills.
Why Should I Take WorkKeys®?
Taking these three WorkKeys® assessments demonstrates for employers that you have the basic math and reading skills to be productive employees. Because of this, more and more employers in South Carolina are recognizing and/or using WorkKeys® as part of their hiring process.
