EFF Work Readiness Profile

What New Workers in Entry Level Jobs Need to Be Able to Do

The EFF Work Readiness profile defines a cross-industry foundation of knowledge, skills and abilities that new workers need to succeed in entry-level jobs across industries. Front line supervisors and entry-level employees from businesses across the country helped develop this profile.

  • The EFF Work Readiness profile identifies four categories of essential skills: communication, interpersonal, decision-making and lifelong learning skills.


  • The profile also identifies the critical entry-level tasks that require use of those skills.
