Career readiness testing set at WNC
Job skills testing that helps match employers with desirable employees and points workers to preferred jobs is available at Western Nevada College.
Through American College Testing’s WorkKeys National Career Readiness assessments, employability skills are determined in three areas: applied mathematics, reading for information, and locating information. Test questions are based on situations in the everyday work world.
Testing will be available at WNC at least once per month, says David Steiger, the college’s director of economic development. For details on costs and testing dates, see http://www.campusce.net/wnc/course/course.aspx?catId=77.
Tiffiany Howard, a UNLV professor and recent Congressional Black Caucus Foundation senior research fellow, is the lead author of the study aimed at identifying ways banks can help support and invest in Black entrepreneurs.
