Take the test, earn free gas

Albany, GA (WALB) - If you're willing to help Albany prove it's a work ready city, you could earn a free gas card.

More than 450 people have completed the Work Ready Assessment Test at Albany Technical College.

The city needs two thousand people to take the exam before they can submit their results.

Now they're offering a $20.00 gas card, or a week long bus pass, as incentives for the next 200 to sign up to take the four part test.

The test could help entice new companies to set up shop in south Georgia.

"If we can objectively document to companies like NEW like other companies that may want to move in or existing companies that are expanding that we have the available workforce than it makes the job of those who market the community much, much easier," says Matt Trice, ATC's Vice President of Economic Development Programs. 

The test takes several hours. To schedule a Work Ready Assessment, contact Albany Technical College.
