Skill Connect Assessments Make Their Debut
March 16 was the launch date of the Work Force Ready System and the first eight Skill Connect Assessments. They are now available for sale. And, what’s the reaction been from the field? Positive. We have people signing up to be proctors. We’ve already sold assessments to schools, and we have many more schools and states calling and sending inquiries and expressing interest. To see the purchase site, go to www.workforcereadysystem.org/.
We’re not keeping our light under a bushel either. In support of Work Force Ready System marketing, our communications office has sent out news releases to the education press, education reporters and to the trade press for all of the areas covered by this initial release. Our PR agency is sending follow-ups to the major publications.
In all, 1,300 e-mailed releases have been sent, and we know we’ve already received coverage, including Industry Week. To see it, go to this link. The main release and the cosmetology news release were also posted on PRWeb, and that means we’ve been covered on Google News, Yahoo News, MSN and the Associated Press among 42 other search engines. We know our news has been read in Canada, China, India, Germany, Spain, France and Italy, among many other nations. There have been over 500 complete readings of the general release alone.
