Job Search: Transferable Skills
Skills and experience are what employers seek and job candidates have to offer. A skill is defined as the ability to use one's knowledge effectively and readily in execution or performance, a learned power of doing something competently, a developed aptitude or ability. Transferable skills are things you have learned to do well that can be used and taken with you from job to job, competencies that can be used in multiple situations. Transferable skills are especially important to college students and career changers.
