Three Core Transferable Skills

Saturday, July 12th, 2008
Selecting a major often leaves students with a limited view of career opportunities, which can lead to discouragement and regret when the job hunt rolls around. Graduating students need to look beyond the confinements of their majors and realize that some universities are slightly behind when it comes to adapting and keeping up with rapidly changing business needs and opportunities. Generally, if you can gain three core transferable skills over the course of your college experience, these can be applied across a number of careers:
  1. Organization
  2. Strategic Thinking
  3. Communication
No matter the label on your diploma, if you can prove mastery of these three core skills, a number of opportunities will be open to you (keep in mind, you won't master these in a classroom alone). Have any other important core skills to add? Feel free to chime in.
