If you happen to be an individual who is in the middle of switching careers, then before applying for another job you need to identify the skills that you possess and the skills that are actually required. You must have gained some skills from your previous work which you can employ in your prospective occupation. These set of skills are commonly known as transferable skills and, they can generally be utilized in every work-field. The following are a few tips to help you uncover your transferable work skills
Transferable skills aren’t necessarily only acquired through work. When it comes to transferable skills, you need to take into consideration all sorts of activities that you usually engage in regularly such as hobbies, volunteering and social experiences. All of these have the ability to equip you with certain kinds of skills, hence you need to really dig in and discover what you learnt through them.
Ask your friends or a mentor to help you out: If you are having trouble figuring out the skills that you actually posses then seek the help of your friends, co-workers or a professional career adviser. These individuals might point out certain skills that you might have ignored.
