What is WORKREADY?
WORKREADY! is a curriculum provided by West Michigan Works! to measure how well you understand and use nine important skills that employers value most. Check out the nine skills below.
How do we know these are the skills employers value?
Because we asked. West Michigan employers told us what skills they look for in an ideal candidate or employee, and the curriculum was developed based on this input.
How does WORKREADY work?
- Take a pre-assessment to measure your current understanding and use of the employability skills.
- Attend workshops to increase your knowledge of skills that scored lower on the pre-assessment.
- Take a post-assessment to measure how your understanding of the skill(s) may have changed.
- Receive a certificate that tells employers that you are WORKREADY!
