Overview

Are you trying to stand out among hundreds of applications to gain an interview? The Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) is allowing job seekers to do just that!

The CRC is a clear standardized tool to assess the competencies of potential and current employees in the workplace skills areas of:

  • Reading for Information
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Locating Information

The certificate levels indicate readiness for job success as:

  • BRONZE signifies that a recipient possesses skills that support success for 30% of likely jobs.
  • SILVER signifies the recipient possesses skills for 65% of jobs.
  • GOLD signifies the recipient possesses skills for 90% of jobs.

The assessments are based on job profiles identifying the basic employability skills for over 17,500 jobs. Skill-gap training is also available to assist individuals to improve their award levels.

The Governor-endorsed CRC is supported by the Virginia Workforce Council, Chamber of Commerce, AFL-CIO, the Virginia Manufacturers Association and many Virginia businesses.
