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?!

I was recently fired from my job over a genuine misunderstanding and am feeling at a loss on what to do now. I worked there too long to exclude it from my resume, how is that gap going to look to new potential employers? I don't know how I am going to explain this. I'm so worried my lack of impressive experience and references are really going to make it difficult for me to find a new job. I want to take on a better position than my past but find difficulty in selling my under-qualified skill set to a potential employer. How do you gain experience when it seems so few places are willing to accept your current lack of experience? How do you convince someone you are capable of doing the job when you don't actually have any experience to refer back to? I know I am capable of much more than my past roles but I do need someone willing to train me as I have only held entry level retail/customer service positions though I am no longer interested in this work. I'm looking into job training and counseling services, going back to school, anything I can to get into better work. Do you have any helpful advice? How did you convince an employer to hire you for a new role you have not taken on before? Do you have any links that helped you in selling your skills to potential employers? Maybe you found a good career counseling service? I need all the help.
