ACT has one of the largest, most robust occupational profiles databases available. More than 20,000 job titles, ranging from white-collar professional to blue-collar technical positions, have been profiled by ACT-authorized job profilers. Extensive research has been done on these jobs to identify the essential skills and skill levels for employee selection, hiring, and training.

Job Profiling

  • Helps employers identify the skills and skill levels current and prospective employees need in order to be successful on the job.
  • Provides individuals with a clear picture of the skills and skill levels they need to qualify for and be successful in the jobs they want.
  • When combined with WorkKeys assessments and curriculum allows students and workers to make appropriate decisions about jobs and to identify their strengths and weaknesses as they pursue their education and career goals.

Hiring really comes down to a skill match. There is some risk in taking the easy way out—making the quick hire rather than the quality hire. With WorkKeys, you can make the quality hire more quickly.
