school and our communities. Time spent at paid work,
learning new things, taking care of a home. A p0sition a person holds doing specific duties. A group of similar jobs for which people usually have to develop skills and knowledge. A specific category of work. A person can have several different jobs within an occupation Your Career Path What are your skills? Are you sure? Skills: Many people under-estimate and under-sell their skills in job interviews 1. Innate skills 2.Transferable skills 3. Job-specific skills Innate skills are the characteristics we often think of as personality traits. Some examples are: punctual, conscientious, organized, honest, friendly, etc. Transferable skills are those that transfer readily from one job to another. Generally, these skills are learned and developed over time. Some examples are: written and verbal communication, managing, negotiating, solving problems, and meeting deadlines. Job-specific skills generally are those considered specific to an occupation. When asked to name their skills, these often are the abilities people think of first. They include things like construction engineering, flying a plane, using industry-specific software applications, operating a video camera and typing at a certain speed.
While these skills are valuable, many do not transfer to other positions or industries. ACTIVITY: Fill out skills handout # 1 : Career skills worksheet (in BB) Adapted from:
