Work Hard Work Smart Promoting National Career Readiness Certificate

Work Hard Work Smart and the Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce are promoting the National Career Readiness Certificate or NCRC.

They teamed up with Workforce Solutions of North Texas in promoting the job assessment certificate that connects prospective employees to regional employers.

The assessment is free to all Wichita and Wilbarger County residents who are unemployed and underemployed. The assessment costs $25 for anyone who does not fall into the category.

Over 60 employers in Wichita County have signed letters of commitment recognizing the significance of the NCRC and the supporting employers list continues to grow.

Director of Work Hard Work Smart Teea Reed says "For these people to get extra thing they can add to their resume or they can talk about in a job interview, or a way to have an edge on their competition, it's going to open so many doors in the community."

Workforce Solutions of North Texas is a major contributor to the Work Hard-Work Smart program, and they are ready to help anyone who is unemployed or underemployed receive their NCRC.
