In this post, we list all GED® (TASC in Indiana) prep facilities and testing centers in the Greenfield region.
Indiana is using the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) for HSE (high school equivalency) testing.

GED (TASC) exam – what’s new
These days, we can still find close to 40 million men and women in the U.S. who, for some reason, never finished high school, and the HSE program is basically designed for them. Every year, more than half a million students complete the TASC/GED exam, and you might be one of them. To see if you qualify, visit GED (TASC) testing in Indiana.
So the state of Indiana introduced CTB/McGraw-Hill’s high school equivalency (HSE) assessment program, Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC), to replace the GED exam that has been in use for decades.
So Indiana stopped using the GED for HSE (high school equivalency) testing and switched to the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion). The GED became too expensive and is only available on a computer while the TASC can be taken both on-computer and on-paper.
In total, you need around 7.5 hours to deal with all five tests, generally split up over several days but you also have the option to deal with the four tests separately. The TASC, just like the GED, is NOT offered online. You are required to appear in person at one of Indiana’s official HSE testing centers. If you earn your HSE diploma, you will definitely get better employment options, and the credential also allows for continued education in college. You may also want to take a look at these practice tests for your TASC exam that are offered for free on this website.
There are some real advantages to getting your GED certificate: you’ll get a better Job, the majority of jobs in America require a high school diploma or equivalent. The GED certificate is accepted as such by employers. By earning your GED diploma you will boost your self-esteem. You are proud to have accomplished something that is going to improve your life. You have shown you can accomplish you set their minds to. You now have the chance to go on to college. Practically all colleges and universities accept the GED degree as equivalent to a high school diploma.
How to maximize the effectiveness of your resume
When you have received your Indiana HSE diploma, it’s time to go to college or find a good job and your resume will play an important role. Here is a little word of advice from somebody who’s an absolute expert on resumes. I deal with a lot of resumes, a lot of job seekers and a lot of recruiters. Every time I think that I have seen it all, another person’s resume manages to amaze me. Some resumes are so packed with information that it is written like an autobiography. When this happens, recruiters become overwhelmed with the amount of text on the resume and often will not take the time or energy to read through it.
It is imperative to remember the purpose of a resume is to GET THE INTERVIEW. It is important to create a very neat resume. Job seekers are at the mercy of the recruiter. Recruiters receive hundreds of resumes each week and have to skim them quickly. If a resume is sloppy, it will probably be thrown away. I once talked to a recruiter that always kept their resumes in a neat stack. If they receive a resume that has been folded or in any way makes their pile sloppy they will throw it away.
There are five essential components to the basic resume. The first is the heading, which should consist of the name in bold letters so that it stands out above the other words on the page. Remember, this is a marketing piece for you, so you want name recognition. However, do not make it larger than a 16 point font and stick with 14 point font if it is going to be scanned or saved as HTML text.
Next make a clear objective, which shows the recruiter that you have done at least enough research to know what positions they are hiring for. The day of “fluffy” feel good objectives are gone, according to most recruiters. Instead, provide the job title you are seeking, such as marketing assistant. In your education section decide which you want to highlight more with bold text. Either emphasize the degree that was obtained or the university that was attended. It is good to list any honors received here such as Magna Cum Lade.
In the experience section, sell your transferable work skills using action verbs or nouns in brief bulleted statements. Use a variety of words here and try to hit keywords that are common to the job descriptions of the positions being applied for. Finally, a section with activities and awards or something similar is helpful. Things such as extracurricular involvement and awards show what a well-rounded candidate you are, so take advantage of the opportunity to brag about yourself. This is one situation where it is ok to do so.
With peak recruiting time here and a tough economy, do not delay getting your resume together. The better polished the resume is, the better chance you have of getting a recruiter to look at it, let alone call you for an interview. Some recruiters will say that they hardly give a resume anywhere near 30 seconds because they have so many to skim in the course of a day. Anything you can do to help yourself gain an edge ethically is a good idea to take advantage of. This includes a well-written resume as well as follow up or using contacts you know in the organization. There are plenty of resources to help with resume writing including your alma mater’s or current schools career center.
