Selling Yourself using the Transferable Skills Kit - Our Secret Weapon!
How do I sell
my Transferable Skills?
This is the powerful secret weapon of the 4MinutesToTheJob system – a two hundred-fifty page multiple-choice kit. Transferable skills are those skills that you may have learned in previous jobs that may be unrelated to the job your are seeking. Transferable skills are often learned in non-work activities. They will help you break into the new career you want, or get the internal promotion you deserve.
We went right to the heart of the recruiting process. Why do employers want to have a resume? Why do they interview you? The key? Employers want to know your skills. Employers don’t hire you for the places you worked. They hire you for the skills that you learned
at those places
The better the place, the better the skills. We will sell your skills to the employer into the career you so richly deserve!
Here is an example of quantifying one of the sixty skills listed in the Transferable Skills Kit. Many candidates want to get across the idea that they can get along with people.
