transferable skills based jobs

Transferable skills-based hiring is gaining popularity because employers are looking for qualified candidates with the necessary skills to succeed in the job.

Research shows that a job seeker with the necessary skills is 60% more likely to be a successful hire.

When your competencies/ skills are aligned with your job, you are set up for success, and you are more likely to be engaged and motivated at work. This can lead to higher performance, productivity, and profitability.

When your skills are well matched with your job and you feel a sense of belonging at your organization, you will be less likely to leave.

As an example, the 20 In-Demand Skills for Today's Work Environment article gives details of the most in-demand skills you should look to develop!
