I am a little late posting about my WorkKeys test. It took one day short of two weeks to get the results. Each day I would check the mail hoping the results would be there waiting for me. I lack patience when waiting on test results of any type, medical or work type. Don't these people know you are sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear something.
I earned the Silver Certificate. I was disappointed considering which category cost me the Gold Certificate. The results of my pre-test were Math - 5 out of 7 levels, Locating Information - 6 out of 6 (perfect score), Reading - 6 out of 7.
These scores would have given me a Gold.
The true test: Math - 6 out of 7 (gained one level), Reading - 7 out of 7 (gained two levels), Locating Information - 4 out of 6. Locating information was my best score in the pre-test and yet cost me the Gold. I could have gotten a 4 in each category and still earned the Silver Certicate. A Gold required 5 or higher in each category.
So now I have something to at least include with my resume, that at my age I still have somewhat of a brain. :)
The job market is just so difficult. I have been thinking about a CNA program, just not sure if that is the route I want to take. I plan on taking a medical terminolgy course at the local vocational school, hoping that will help in the job search. Then perhaps a course in billing and coding.
