More than 1,200 Wichita County Residents Receive NCRC

The Work Hard-Work Smart initiative, lead by the Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce and Industry has helped more than 1,200 community members receive their National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC).

The NCRC is just one part of their pursuit to stimulate the regional economy, make our local employers more successful, and get the unemployed and under-employed back to work.

"With over 1,200 thousand Work Hard - Work Smart participants receiving their NCRC certificates this week, we are excited to introduce these candidates to our local employers," said Michael Paris, Vice President for Workforce Development with the Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Approximately 85% of high school seniors scored well enough to receive their NCRC last Fall. They will be receiving their NCRC certificate this week and information on more opportunities that can assist in their job search, including an invitation to attend the first National Career Readiness Job Fair at Sikes Senter Mall on May 1st from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.

"Work Hard - Work Smart is extremely grateful for the relationships we have built with the surrounding high schools," said Teea Reed, Director for Work Hard - Work Smart, "Thanks to these relationships, surrounding high school seniors will not only graduate with a high school diploma, they will be graduating with a nationally recognized credential stating they are work-ready."

With the first National Career Ready Job Fair coming up in May, all potential employees wanting to display their skills to regional employers are encouraged to call the Work Hard - Work Smart office today at (940) 766-5601.
