The Career Transitions-Transferable Skills & Career Portfolio Workbook contains skill awareness exercises designed to help people identify their current skills and the skills they need to succeed. It also contains checklists and guidelines for creating a résumé and assembling a personalized career portfolio.
With the first exercise, a client begins to create a master list of his or her skills. Each additional exercise explores different types of skills, places to gain skills, and ways to present these skills to an employer. We also explore the importance of connecting personal well-being to career success.
