Finding jobs that use your skills
Skills are the language of the workplace. Many people don’t realise that the skills they’ve built in one job can be useful in many other jobs and industries. Since most people will move between a number of different jobs in their lifetime, it’s important to understand how your skills can transfer from one job to another.
People often have trouble naming the skills that they have built from their past jobs. Skills Match can show you skills you may have built in past jobs, and can also show you other jobs that use similar skills – some of these might surprise you!
Employers often value a person’s skills just as much as, or sometimes even more than, a formal qualification. You can use Job Outlook to discover the skills that are usually needed for a job. There are more than 1000 career profiles on Job Outlook, each one has a Skills and Knowledge page – view the Activities list on this page to see the skills usually needed for a job. You might have developed some of these skills in past jobs, by supporting your local school or community group, or from other life experiences.
Take on the task, you’ll be surprised.
