Hidden Gems: Transferable Skills

The Hidden Gem of the month is “transferable skills”!  What are they, and why are they important?


Well, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) has compiled a list of the top attributes that employers want to see on a resume.  Click here to take a look at what skills you can work on developing and keep them mind as you prepare your resume and other application documents!

The Career and Advising Center also has developed workshops to address this skill set, help students understand how/when to develop these skills, and how to best sell them to employers.  Take a look at our website to learn about upcoming opportunities and to hear a bit more about how these skills come into play when you are searching for jobs/internships!


If you have ever spent more than 12 seconds on our website, you have probably seen that we have a ton of content.  To help campus get a glimpse of some of our less well-known/utilized resources, we will provide a monthly blog highlighting one of our “Hidden Gems”!  Be on the lookout!
