As companies have begun to lay off individuals, there are many transferable skills that individuals should hone in on, from jobs outside of their industry that they would not typically put on their radar that should be. Many skills are transferable across industries, such as those coming from the hospitality industry, that will benefit employers whether they are in tech or transportation.

Here Are Five Transferable Skills Across Industries:

Passion for Learning and Growing

The past few years has given individuals a time to try new things and hone in on things they did not make time for before. This has been a wonderful time for candidates to explore training courses and learn new skills, signs that they have an ongoing commitment to education and improvement. A willingness to learn and grow will help them succeed in new roles or industries.


Thinking on their feet is critical in most industries, and this is especially important in today’s constantly changing climate and work environments.

Big Ideas

Things are shifting, and those who bring creativity to the table will be at the forefront of helping their companies innovate. You never know who will generate big ideas that can be industry game-changers.

Customer Service

Customer service skills are among the most transferable skills, whether someone comes from a retail sales position or works the customer service desk at an airport. These individuals can easily transition into call center roles or open positions in a client services division.

Leadership and Management

Leadership and management skills can come from many places. Whether someone has been a restaurant manager or lead housekeeper, these organizational and people skills will keep them a step above and benefit the companies they go to.

The above transferable skills will help you find talented candidates across roles and industries, regardless of their previous experience. If your company needs talent support or solutions, our vetted talent pool has many of the above skills and more. Please contact the TRC team today.
