Interview Tip of the Month: No Experience? Sell Your Transferable Skills

Many job skills are transferable – which means you can apply them in a variety of positions. To make yourself more desirable as a job candidate, play yours up during the interview:

  1. Define your transferable skill set. Things like organizational skills, software proficiency, communication skills, supervisory / management skills, the ability to diagnose and solve problems, and customer service skills are all examples of transferable skills. Refer to your resume to make a list of yours – and commit it to memory.
  2. Showcase them during the interview. Listen for opportunities to highlight ways you could use your transferrable skills. When your experience or background is not a perfect match, close the gap by demonstrating how you can apply your existing work skills in the new setting.
