By actively engaging in ACT Work Ready Communities (ACT WRC), you contribute to the betterment of both your company and your community as a whole. ACT WRC plays a vital role in assisting job seekers in your region by providing them with insights into the skills that employers, like yourself, seek in candidates. Additionally, it aids local educators in equipping students with the necessary tools for success. Your support as an employer and your recognition of the value of an ACT WorkKeys National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) are highly valued and needed. 


While the NCRC serves as a crucial tool for evaluating an applicant’s skillset, it is equally important for employers to have a clear understanding of the skills necessary for effective job performance within their organizations. The ACT Job Profiling process addresses this need by aligning required skills with specific job responsibilities, resulting in a tailored task list and identification of essential skills for each position. By utilizing this profiling approach and its accompanying report, employers can efficiently match job openings with candidates possessing the relevant NCRC. Furthermore, having completed an ACT Job Profile enables a company to mandate that all candidates for a given position hold a corresponding NCRC. Additionally, ACT Job Profiling offers the advantage of providing information that can be used to develop or refine job descriptions and streamline work processes, benefiting both new ventures and existing businesses seeking to update or clarify job roles and expectations.
