88 Campbell High School Seniors Are ‘Work Ready Certified’

Eighty-eight seniors at Campbell High School have been designated as Work Ready Certified. The Work Ready Certificate is a nationally-recognized portable credential to employers, educators, and students. Designed by ACT, the company that created the ACT college exam, the certificate indicates training level acquisition as needed on the job. Three core areas are assessed for work ready certification: Reading for Information, Locating Information, and Applied Mathematics. The Work Ready Certificate’s designation helps employers to identify applicants who have the basic employable skills needed for the job they wish to fill. Trainable habits, sometimes referred to as employability soft skills, also include work-related attitudes and behaviors contributing to on-the-job success. Work Ready Certificates may be brought to job interviews to indicate employability skills and commitment to achievement.
