New Hampshire's Work Ready program partners with community colleges to help unemployed job seekers improve skills

 
Foster's Daily Democrat
 
In an effort to continue lowering New Hampshire's unemployment rate, Gov. John Lynch officially announced on Tuesday morning his third and final phase of a jobs initiative called New Hampshire Working.

The third phase, titled Work Ready N.H., is a program that works with the Community College System of New Hampshire to perform assessments of individuals looking to improve their problem-solving and soft skills for the job market. So far, four of the community colleges in the state have joined the initiative, with the other three hoping to become involved in the near future.

The program works by targeting skills in a given individual that are below what they should be for the individual's current or future job prospects. These skills are determined through a personal assessment, which unemployed individuals take when they have signed up for the program.

The assessment contains questions pertaining to math, reading and problem solving, as well as "soft skills," including workplace behaviors, teamwork and ethical behavior. Test takers are rated in their proficiency for each category based on correctly answered questions.
