Welcome Job Seekers

Are you looking for a new way to show hiring managers that you have the skills needed to do the job?

Through TalentNEO, OhioMeansJobs.com has incorporated WorkKeys® skills scores into all the jobs posted on the site. This allows:
Employers to search for qualified candidates based on the results of their WorkKeys® assessments, and Job seekers to easily search for job openings based on their skills scores.

Sounds good, how do I get a skills score?

You’ll need to take WorkKeys® assessments. WorkKeys® is designed to assess real-world, workplace skills needed across most jobs. It’s not like the tests you took in school that focus on history, algebra, science, etc. WorkKeys® measures common workplace skills.

The best place to start is by taking the practice assessments on this site (if you haven’t already, you’ll need to create a user account).
Step 1: Create a user account
Step 2: Take the WorkKeys® practice assessments
(scores will be automatically saved to your “backpack”)

How did you do?
You’re ready to take WorkKeys® WorkKeys® if:
You know the skills scores for your targeted position(s) and met or exceeded it
OR
You don’t have a targeted position in mind and scored at least a level 3 for each assessment
If you’re not quite there, don’t worry, TalentNEO has a solution to help raise your scores.

What do my scores actually mean?
Skills scores range from Level 3 to Level 6 (or 7, depending on the assessment). The higher the score the better. More information on assessment results is located here.
