What is a good transferable skill?

information well? Cooperative? Appreciate other people's ideas? Explain more clearly a complex technical point to someone with only Basic English skills? Good listener to someone? Good at figuring out financial reports? Know how to work towards achieving the goals? Like to think up new ideas? problem solving? Responsible? Get along well with others? Understand the environment? Reflect self-confidence? Etc.


We can't say qualifications are enough for a well career. Many people starting out on their careers imagine that their qualifications are the things that count. A good degree or diploma can open doors to prestigious jobs. But it is so important to keep in mind not knowledge alone that will help along in career.


The more progress up the career ladder the more you discover that it is the little things that count. Those are the certain core skills which often overlook which apply to a wide range of situations and jobs. They are often referred to as good transferable skills. Because good transferable skills consist of,

  • Strong academic and thinking skills
  • Strong technical skills
  • Commitment to lifelong learning
  • Ability to work in teams
  • Communicate effectively
