WHAT ARE TRANSFERABLE SKILLS?
They are skills that you use in every job, no matter the title or the field. Some transferable skills are “hard skills” (e.g., data analysis, typing speed, a foreign language). Some transferable skills are soft skills (self-control, empathy, assertiveness).
Think of transferable skills as part of your career tool belt.
Every worker gains transferable skills from each career experience including part-time jobs, volunteering, internships, conferences, full-time jobs and student organizations.
