Why The Business World Needs Transferable Skills Post COVID-19!! by Ariaa123(f): 7:08am On Feb 16, 2021
From essential technical skills for job applicants, the spotlight is on transferable skills in the post-coronavirus era. Companies and employees must sit up and take notice.
The numbers speak… and they speak loud! COVID-19 has displaced many workers across the world, and a survey of displaced workers found the following:

What displaced workers worry about:

• 58% (21.1 million): unsure of how to depict their transferable skills on their resume

• 58% (21.1 million) not confident of finding different jobs where their skills would be useful

• 57% (20.8 million)not confident about identifying their transferable skills

• 56% (20.4 million) on a job hunt in a similar industry even though the industry is significantly cutting back employment

• 34% (12.4 million) good examples of the applicability of their skills to a different job

This is a matter of concern, as transferable skills are important.

74% of UK employers treat transferable skills at par with or above hard technical skills.
Nearly 80% of employers who responded to the 2018 MRI Network Performance Management Study strongly agreed or somewhat agreed that they were more likely to offer jobs to people lacking industry experience but possessing strong transferable skills.
Clearly, to get the right transferable skills on board, you must understand what such skills are and how to find them.

What are transferable skills?

These are skills not particular to a specific job or industry. A candidate carries a transferable skill to every job, industry, or circumstance he or she works in. This could be good teamwork skills, being a good listener, or anything else useful at a workplace. Experience of work on different projects and in different environments is a great source of picking up transferable skills useful everywhere.

Transferable skills are not as simple as they may seem. Time and experience play critical roles when you want to bulk up these skills, and they serve you in good stead at or outside the workplace.

How has the pandemic affected the demand for transferable skills?
