The Highest Valued Transferable Job Skills You’ll Want On Your Resume

Communication, teamwork and problem-solving. These common “buzzwords” are generally present in job advertisements because recruiters are looking for specific kinds of people who are already in possession of these highly valuable, transferable job skills.

These transferable job skills are ones that you may have picked up and developed in previous positions or roles, and which can easily be applied in the new role.

If you are a current job seeker or looking for your next career path move, being able to prove that you are in possession of these skills on your resume could be the difference between making it through to the next round or not.

These transferable skills can be upskilled like any other developable skillset and should be done if you wish to remain relevant or gain advantages over others.

In your resume or during the interview process for a job, you should address the most common transferable job skills that you may already be in possession of. Common ones that many people are already familiar with and have may include:

  • Problem-solving skills – allows the analysis of a situation to identify underlining complications and generate potential solutions in order to implement the best one.
  • Communication – effective communication means an applicant can convey information and messages so there is little confusion as to the intended meaning of the original message.
  • Self-management – this shows recruiters that you are able to give critical tasks focus and undivided attention, which shows productivity and professionalism.
  • Teamwork – this is to do with your ability to work well with others, and towards a common goal.
  • Technical Competence – most commonly this will involve being able to use technology appropriately and fluently.

If you’re someone who often finds it difficult to make large lump sum payments for goods or services, you may want to consider looking into “Buy Now Pay Later” services.

This method should allow you to pay in full for the product or service without overly straining your finances – you pay back what you can, as agreed upon when you begin the buy now pay later service.

Some popular buy now pay later services include Afterpay, Zip Pay, Brightepay, and some credit card networks such as  Mastercard and Visa, can offer buy now pay later arrangements.

  • It becomes easier to overspend with buy now pay later services, so know your limits on what you can and can’t afford.
  • You will be charged fees and costs to use the service, which can add up to a princely sum in and of itself.
  • Keeping track of your payments can be tricky if you’ve signed up for multiple services.
  • It could affect your loan applications for a car or mortgage as lenders consider buy now pay later spending just as much as your credit score.
  • Late repayments can appear on your credit report, which affects your ability to borrow money in the future.
  • Layby can be a cheaper alternative to buy now pay later, with no account-keeping or late fees to consider

  • Rather than use your credit card for payments to your BNPL account, consider linking to your debit account instead.
