There are many skills that we acquire in life as we grow. We can easily identify some while others never seem as important as we do not consider them till we are in a situation where we require them.

Here are some tips on how to transfer skills from one industry to another.

1.    Identify the industry you target for a career change

You must have an idea in mind where you want to make the switch. If you work in a processing plant as an operator look for something similar to your job even though in a different field. Once you have an idea in mind, you will be able to gather up knowledge on the field.

2.    Line up the skills required

Yes, you have been working in a related field, what skills do you have for the new job? What skills will you need from your previous experience? Communication skills that you learned in your last workplace are critical in the new field. Identify how they will fit into the equation.

3.    What does the job require from you?

Once you are sure that you have the right skills, you need to match them to the needs of the new employer. Try to think in what ways you can cater to the needs of your new employer with your unique set of skills.

4.    Make the switch

Go for it. You have all the skills that your new task will require. You have a lot to offer due to your unmatched skills. Make a move when an opportunity arises and make the most out of the experience.
