The City of Hinesville and All of Liberty County has earned the privilege of becoming a Georgia Work Ready area. This state initiative opens great opportunities for job seekers, current employees, and employers.
For job seekers: Take a FREE test at the Liberty Campus Savannah Technicial Institute in Hinesville. The test will measure your work skills in three categories. Depending on your score you will receive a Certificate labeled Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum. These are levels. If you feel that you want to get a better level certificate, you can take a FREE online course to learn the skills and then retake the test. Walk into an interview and feel confident that you have what they need.
For current emplyees: Take the FREE Work Skills test and you could increase the opportunity to get a promotion in your current job field, depending on your employer.
For employers: There is a general test offered that will measure a persons general knowledge on mathematics, locating information, and reading for information. If you need a more specific test done, you can request for a test be made for that specific job position. This is normally $2000, but because we are "Work Ready", it is FREE. A person will "shadow" the job on site and make notes as to what is needed for the job. A test will be created, and may be offered for FREE to the public. Then you can require that only a certain level of certificate for that position is required to apply; within labor laws. This will cut down on HR work and save you time and money! Some employers are already requiring a certificate in order to accept any applications for any positions. Also, if you have less than 50 employees, you may be eligible to receive $250 per certified employee that you hire. There is a cap on the total amount you can receive. This extra incentive will cut the cost of time paid during training.
This is a fantastic program that give endless opportunity to everyone. Great Job Liberty County for getting certified to offer this to your community!
