We often talk of how important skills are and that opportunity should not be constrained nor dictated by degrees. Here’s another take on it from our own version of Tony Stark... #skills

A friend of mine wrote this article I just saw and thought you would enjoy it. We are at the beginning of a major disruption in how we think about education, skills, training, upskilling, etc. Here are some good thoughts from a very successful serial entrepreneur.... #education #skills #training #entrepreneur https://summation.net/2020/08/31/people-need-less-not-more-formal-education-today/

Harvard business review has a long article about how to think about upskilling options for career growth. It kinda boils down to this cool slide.

Food Service Workers do not receive enough credit. Working in restaurants, coffee shops, and lunchrooms provide a strong foundation of skills that will help you excel in your career goals. Here are just a few benefits of working in Food Service:

  1. Cash from Tips Many food service workers receive tips for their service. Those who work at sit-down restaurants, take orders and deliver food to tables generally make more from tips than those at counter-service or serve-yourself restaurants. Food workers who offer delivery services or use counter top jars for tips also make extra money in addition to their wages. Tips provide immediate income so you don't have to wait for your weekly or bi-monthly paycheck to get cash in hand
  2. Free or Discounted Food Some food service workers get discounts on food they purchase or get free food during their shift. For example, they might get one free meal for every 8 hours they work or a 50 percent discount on any food they buy. Some restaurant owners might give employees free drinks or free refills or let them have leftovers at the end of business hours. Employers might allow their employees to eat wrong orders, unclaimed delivery items or foods that were overcooked and unacceptable to serve.
  3. Customer Service Skills Food service workers have the added benefit of frequent, direct, face-to-face interactions with customers. They learn important job skills such as how to provide excellent customer service, ensure employee-customer interactions are friendly, and problem-solve customer complaints. These skills are beneficial in almost any industry and are easily transferable should a food service worker choose to pursue another career path. Food service workers also develop strong interpersonal skills such as effective communication strategies, listening skills and assertiveness.
  4. Money Handling Skills Experience handling money is an advantage for many food service workers. They learn to make change, operate computerized cash registers, process credit card transactions, balance their cash drawers and report financial transactions. This is another highly transferable job skill that is useful in other industries. Some food service workers make cash deposits and report income at the end of the business day, using ledgers or accounting software. They often keep inventory logs and notify managers when stocks run low. *Article originally written by Kristine Tucker @ the Houston Chronicle

When I was preparing to make a shift in my career, I was nervous because I felt as though I didn’t have enough relevant experience for my desired role. Luckily, I realized the tremendous amount of transferable skills I had learned from my internships and many years in the hospitality industry.

Transferable skills are "naturally learned" skills that are non-job specific and can be used across any occupation. Many are commonly known as soft skills, and they include things like problem-solving, leadership, communication and time management.

A few years ago, I was applying for a Funder Relationships role, but I didn’t have any prior experience dealing with external partners in an office setting, one of the main job requirements. However, I knew I was skilled in communicating with others! I was very comfortable interacting with various audiences thanks to my experience as a server. This proved to be an excellent talking point during my phone screening! I was able to demonstrate my knowledge of communicating with different audiences through a few brief examples. I was also able to illustrate my ability to multitask, organize and work effectively with other team members.

Curious about how you can translate your skills? Check out part two of this mini-series where I discuss how you can prepare for your next interview.

In the meantime, what are some #TransferableSkills you have?!
