Many times job searchers get frustrated with the lack of jobs in their profession. They begin to think of things they would like to do but only find things they don’t want to do. In the middle of an internet research project, I came across a site that is a must for anyone looking to use their transferable skills. The site is myskillsmyfuture.org and is part of the career one stop website.
The purpose of the site to be able to type in your current or past job and find out information about the careers that will use the same skills. You can narrow down your job title on the results page. Additionally you can choose the location for your new job. The results will give you the job titles and descriptions of similar careers. You can compare the required skills, look at job listings, business, the typical wage, education needed and where you can get training. The site will tell you what licenses and certifications you need.
This site will get you started thinking about a new career in an easy to use format. From there, more research needs to be done. But in a short amount of time, you can get a few options.
