WorkKeys Testing

Find the best career or job candidate

ACT WorkKeys tests benefit both job candidates and employers. Questions are based on real-life work situations and scores provide useful information about how a job candidate’s skills measure up to the demands of a particular job.   Candidates can use their ACT WorkKeys scores to evaluate career choices and obtain additional education and training if necessary, while employers can use the scores to make informed hiring decisions.
