National Career Readiness Certificate

Been out of work for a while?  Adding a nationally recognized career certificate to your resume can help you rise to the top of the job applicant pool.

WorkSource is now offering Oregon residents the opportunity to earn a National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) at no cost. The NCRC will prove to employers that your skills are current. And if you’re lacking that “piece of paper” that always seems to get other candidates hired ahead of you, the NCRC will give your resume a professional advantage. Over 2,000 Oregon employers have committed to recognizing the NCRC when making hiring decisions, and that number is growing every day.
