Transferable skills are the portable skills you take with you as you change roles, careers or sectors. They are your greatest asset when planning your next career move and competing for new jobs that may require transferable skills such as budgeting, policy creation, diplomacy and giving presentations, to name a few.
Begin by identifying your skills and describe how you have applied them throughout your career experiences. As you begin to explore new career opportunities pay attention to how those skills and experiences translate to positions you are considering.
Once you start writing your resume, include key transferable skills throughout the document. When interviewing, be prepared to describe impactful stories explaining how you have used your skills successfully.
Taking the time to identify transferable skills and related experiences will definitely make your next career move an easier transition.
