Marshall Public Library announces participation in the National Career Readiness Certificate movement

Marshall Public Library announced Wednesday, Jan. 23, its intention to participate in the National Career Readiness Certificate program, a nationwide initiative to improve the quality of the U.S. workforce.

The program features a nationally recognized credential of essential workplace skills that enables individuals to document their readiness for careers.

The library will ask its future job candidates to acquire and submit the skills credential with their applications.

"We see this program as a very positive move for the library and for the Marshall and Saline County community," said Wicky Sleight, library director. "By encouraging our applicants to acquire the NCRC we feel that the community will begin to establish a pool of highly skilled candidates for many future jobs. We believe that this step will ultimately contribute to the future growth of the local economy and we hope many others in our community will consider joining us in adopting the NCRC. The essential employability skills of reading, math, and locating information are critical not only in the Library but in every workplace."
