Job Search Knowledge Scale 3rd Edition

A self-assessment tool that identifies how much an individual knows about looking for work.


The Job Search Knowledge Scale (JSKS) helps determine how much an individual knows about looking for work. Test takers respond to 60 true/false statements to discover the job search skills they need to develop to find work faster.

The JSKS offers guidance on the job search methods that work best and provides journaling space to establish job search goals. The assessment saves time and resources by helping people focus on key areas of the job search as needed and land a job more quickly.

It also allows counselors and other professionals to match individual needs with specific job search training. The JSKS works well as an intake assessment and as a pre-test and post-test for educators, workforce development professionals, and counselors who need to prove their results and effectiveness. It also serves as an ideal complement to most of JIST’s job search books, workbooks, and videos.

The JSKS assesses an individual’s knowledge in five areas:

• Identifying job leads
• Applying directly to employers
• Writing resumes and cover letters
• Interviewing
• Following up

Now individuals can complete the JSKS online anytime, anywhere, and on any device!

Assessment results are scored automatically and can be printed to save time and significantly ease the administration process. Administrators can also print or email the assessment access information for individuals who need to take the assessment offsite at a time that is more convenient for them.
