     Background Information:
What is the National Career Readiness System?

   “In the 1950’s, ACT created a nationally
   recognized, standardized resource for
   college entrance. Now, we’re doing the
   same thing for the workforce. The
   National Career Readiness System is
   designed to help job seekers connect
   with employers, and to help employees
   attain and highlight the skills needed for
   advancement.”
           - Richard L. Ferguson, CEO and
        chairman of ACT
