Alaska Career Ready News

"As a classroom teacher of 21 years, I see job profiles as the voice of industry in my classroom. I am charged with preparing students for careers/jobs after graduation, but it would be impossible for me to know all the requirements and expectations for every career/job. Through job profiles industry can speak to me providing the information I need to better prepare students for the careers/jobs of their choice. They can speak to the students as well, letting them know the requirements and expectations students need to meet, to achieve the future they desire."
   -- Susan Thames, Teacher, Dillingham High School

The foundational workplace skills of Applied Math, Reading for Information, and Locating Information can become a common language among employers, job seekers, students, and educators. Alaskans may now earn a portable skills credential that documents their skill levels in these three important foundational skills that are important in virtually all occupations, colleges, and training programs.

Whether you are a student, a parent, an employer, a job seeker, a teacher, or a career guidance counselor, Alaska Career Ready is for you!
