Job Analysis
The WorkKeys® job profiling component offers a concrete way for businesses to analyze the skills needed for specific jobs and to describe those needs to job applicants, students and educators. By comparing job profile information with WorkKeys® assessment information, businesses can make reliable decisions about hiring, training and program development.

WorkKeys® enables educators, individuals and employers to identify skill gaps and guide training decisions to improve skills. Training resources are available through your local WorkOne office or through ACT, an international leader in educational assessment and workforce development services.
