Your transferable skills can be much more important that job-related skills. When you are changing jobs, careers or making the move from school to your first job, it’s important to focus more on your overall transferable skills.
Transferable skills are those skills that can be used in many different occupations, regardless of the type of job. They are universal skills and are the common denominator between your experiences and your future job. You can transfer them from one job to another with little or no effort on your part and without any additional training from your employer.
