Getting the most out of transferable skills takes expertise and experience – an employment history is just the starting point! Workcom’s Transferable Skills Analyses can consider both standardised and employer specific job and task analyses, claimant interview, and employer feedback to gain a comprehensive understanding of the nature of a job, and the skills required to obtain it. We acknowledge the skills gained from life and avocational experience and consider the practicalities of skill proficiency and currency in order to arrive at a fair and realistic understanding of a claimant’s transferable skills. Transferable Skills Assessments can assist in identifying skill gaps, whether or not retraining is necessary and reasonable, and if so, identify the right choice. They can be used to build a claimant’s confidence in their employability and improve their resume for targeting new employment.
