Transferable Skills – Now More Important than Ever!
This year has certainly turned things on its’ head and the job market is certainly no different!
We have seen so many changes to workplaces (most notably working from home), job duties and of course demand.
We have seen an increase in demand for staff in industries where traditionally they would be in their ‘quiet period’ and
for others downturns where they would normally be in peak periods. Some of this has been due to the obvious
and forced closures however some not so predictable.
This has resulted in being able to keep certain sectors of our workforce in ongoing employment; and sadly,
others with not so much. It has been so rewarding working with candidates to look at areas where they
can transfer their skills and have seen some real win/wins as a result!
Here are some useful ways to ensure you are identifying and utilising your transferable skills:
Look at your previous work history, study or training and identify those skills that are currently required in the job market.
This could be certain pc skills, communication and/or negotiation skills, project management or creative/written abilities.
Look at the connections you may have from previous workplaces – you may have partnered with industries previously that
now have a demand and the insight you have into their industry could create a work opportunity?
Highlight on your CV your transferable skills even giving examples in your cover letters as to how this would translate in their roles.
List your previous awards and recognitions as this gives insight into your strengths.
Mention your willingness to learn and your interest in their sector – motivation and a genuine keenness to learn is always highly sought after.
We would love to work with you to help position you and your skill set – ensuring you are putting your best foot
forward in this ever changing work environment we find ourselves in!
