Identifying and articulating your “transferable skills”—skills that are not specific to a certain job title or position, such as meeting deadlines, listening, and solving problems—is a crucial element of any job search. Conducting a transferable skills inventory is a quick and easy way to identify these skills. You can use the results of the inventory to create a more effective resume and to develop discussion points that you can use throughout the interview process. Check out the transferable skills checklist from Rogue Community College or the transferable skills checklist from Missouri State University to help you define and prioritize the skills that you want to highlight as part of your job search strategy.
