Seeing transferable skills is all about perspective and attitude. For some reason, people have a hard time talking about their strengths; what they have to offer prospective employers.
- If you are a student, you could talk about how you have gained excellent time management and organizational skills from balancing your course load. These are important skills to have in any workplace.
- If you were once a chef and now you want to work in the Business Administration world, you could talk about your ability to lead a team and your impeccable ability to multi-task in a high-stress environment.
- If you were in the Military and are now transitioning to obtaining a civilian job, you could express how your strong communication and interpersonal skills allow you to adapt to an ever changing environment, as well as work independently or as part of a team.
These experiences, coupled with a Diploma program from Academy of Learning College could be the perfect combination to find your next career. The Job Search and Resume Course, offered through Academy of Learning College, provides a way to explore your skills from previous jobs, College and life experiences and transform them into powerful statements for your Cover Letter and Resume.
