What are Transferable Skills, and What is Their Significance on a Resume?
The concept of transferable skills is a vital technique for all job-seekers…
- Skills obtained through ANY of the experiences in your life (including extracurricular activities, sports, and classroom experience) that can transfer and apply to the kind of job you want when you graduate.
- Portraying your experiences in terms of transferable skills is probably the MOST IMPORTANT aspect of your resume.
- Most college students could do a much better job of portraying their experiences in terms of transferable skills. Those who do so successfully will be most likely to get interviews.
