Identify your Transferable Skills

Transferable skills are the skills that an individual accumulates through various jobs, hobbies, sports, volunteering and other experiences that can be utilized in the next job or career. These are important particularly when you wish to change your job. In addition, they can also be used by fresh graduates as well as those facing a layoff. Transferable skills can be identified from the formal job titles’ descriptions or other worksheets available at EduGroomers center.

Identifying these skills is very different from knowing how to use them. An individual can use self assessment tools to help him choose suitable careers. The first step is to identify your set of skills; next step will be to sell your transferable skills to the employer. With an objective of highlighting your transferable skills, you can apply to various companies. This can be done by preparing a skill-based resume coupled with a functional or combinational one.

Further, transferable skills are divided into various categories such as creative, leadership, vocabulary-based, etc. Some of the key transferable skills are-

  • Meeting deadlines.
  • Desire to improve.
  • Manage people.
  • Carry out tasks efficiently.
  • Organize projects.
  • Basic computer skills.
  • Solving critical problems.
  • Supervise others.

In addition to these, employers also look for other transferable skills in a person that requires you to deal with company data and accounts. The company might also want you to possess basic skills to deal with people of other companies.

Transferable skills are skills that you can transfer across organizations, across various industries. The sooner one realizes their skill set, the faster one can settle in their choice of career field.
