What are transferable skills and why are they more important than ever?

Transferable skills are talents acquired in one area of your life that can be applied to a job you’re applying for. These can be especially important if you are changing careers.

As a result of Covid-19 many people are faced with the challenge of re-deployment. This is being seen in sectors like hospitality and tourism, where workers may need to consider unrelated opportunities. If you are in this situation, it’s worth spending time thinking about the skills and experience you have gained in your previous jobs and how they could be of value to a future employer.
