We Recognize, We Request Stickers!

Look what I found at Kiamichi Technology Center Atoka Campus! 

Does your WorkKeys assessment center have WorkKeys stickers?  Better yet, do your local companies have these posted? 
I challenge you to locate WorkKeys stickers in your local area, take a picture and forward to the CRC office.  Who will be first to meet this challenge?  Stay tuned!

Lunch On Your Own . . . OKCRC Conference

Priorities first . . . since I'm a foodie. Click here for the Lunch On Your Own Hotspots.  Lunch begins at 12:05 pm and ends at 1:30 pm which is plenty of time to eat at the hotspots I have identified.

Susan's 5 fabulous favorites are:
1.  Stuffed Olive--everything is tasty and delicious
2.  Victoria's Pasta Shop--you haven't lived until you have eaten their cheesy lasagna and cheesy garlic bread
3.  McAlister's Deli--yes, this is a chain but hey, they deliver tasty food and their tea is the best
4.  Alvarado's Mexican--highly recommend the white cheese sauce and red salsa; must try a sopapilla with brandy butter sauce
5.  Eagle One Pizza-large thin crust, the works pizza is mouth watering delicious

Check out the entire list and map by clicking the link above. Decisions, decisions . . .

The At-a-Glance will be posted next week.

Delay with OKCRCs

I wish I could say, "the certificates are in the mail."  We are experiencing a short delay in issuing OKCRCs due to technical challenges.  Certificates will be issued as soon as possible.  Thank you for your patience!

ACT WorkKeys Registrations

ACT staff sent an email regarding the expansion of the length of the WorkKeys ID field for Internet Version WorkKeys assessments.  The OKCRC program will continue to utilize the same WorkKeys ID guidelines that have always been in place.  If you have questions, contact me.
