Everyone has strengths and skills they are naturally good at. Here is a list of transferable skills that workers in all types of careers can use.
|Basic Skills||These are skills needed by almost all workers. These skills are very important to have. Writing, for example, is a basic skill that gets you into a good job. Not having it can keep you out of a good job.|
|People Skills||These are some of the most needed and wanted skills. They're sometimes called "soft skills." These skills help people to work well with others.|
|Management Skills||All workers need these skills, not just managers. Employers hire people who can keep track of projects, money, and their time.|
|Systems Skills||Can you understand how parts and wholes work together? For example, could you see what would happen to your company if a certain employee left? Or how a new tax law might change prices at the grocery store? Then you have systems skills.||
|Technical Skills||Technology includes computers and equipment. Computers are common in most workplaces. People in all occupations should know how to work with technology.||
