Parent terms: Transfer, Skills

Skills that can be introduced in a different socio-cultural or technical environment, or that can be used in other occupations.

Transferable skills include the ability to solve problems, communicate ideas and information effectively, be creative, show leadership and conscientiousness, and demonstrate entrepreneurial capabilities. People need these skills to be able to adapt to different work environments and so improve their chances of staying in gainful employment.
