WorkKeys is a national assessment tool that uses multiple-choice tests to measure real-world skills and career readiness. The Water Authority still considers education, resumes, and credentials for many positions.
WorkKeys helps identify the level of skills you possess to determine your potential for success on the job. While WorkKeys scores are only required for certain Water Authority’s positions, knowing your scores can help you determine your skill based levels and be used as a recognized credential in the hiring process. Through WorkKeys, the Water Authority can also consider applicants who do not have educational credentials or are new to the workforce, starting a new career, or returning to work.
