Rutherford County Work Ethic Distinction
The purpose of the Work Ethic Distinction is to address the needs that industry has for employees who have both technical and employability/soft skills.  The Work Ethic Distinction is a proactive solution to the challenge employers have in hiring individuals who are prepared for the world of work.  Students who obtain this distinction are proving that they are both college and career ready.  To receive the Work Ethic Distinction a student must earn a minimum of 20 points out of a possible 40 points on the industry developed employability standards and a regular high school diploma.  Earning a Work Ethic Distinction and meeting job-related requirements will guarantee an interview with participating Rutherford County employers.  Get the form and current list of employers below. Seniors turn in completed applications during spring of their senior year.
