3 points: Now that you have assessed your skills, you are required to write about these skills. This assignment is single-spaced and 12-point font and should be about four paragraphs and one to two pages long once you have completed it. As this is a writing assignment, you will be graded for grammar, punctuation, spelling, sentence structure, etc.

2 points: In your introductory paragraph, please introduce the three skill areas that you believe are the areas in which you are strongest. In addition, you should clearly rank these three from your strongest to weakest in the opening paragraph. You ranked these in Part 1 of this assignment: Communication skills; Written communication; Organization; Quantitative literacy; Problem-solving/analytical skills; Critical thinking; Creative thinking; Flexibility; Initiative/self-starting; Leadership; Teamwork; Human relations; Ethical reasoning; Local community skills; Global connections.

3 points per skill paragraph: After the introductory paragraph, you will write a paragraph on each of your top 3 skills. Each paragraph should include demonstrated evidence that relates to the transferable skills that are included in part one. For example, if you feel that initiative/self-starting is one of the top three skills you possess, you can then discuss examples of how you improvise and adapt when a task changes unexpectedly or how you anticipate the needs of others. While you were provided examples of transferable skills/core competencies within each area in part one, you are also encouraged to add to these. This would show that you are able to work outside the boundaries of an assignment or project, a creative thinking skill. You should include at least two or three transferable skills in each paragraph. Transferable skills are any skills that you have acquired throughout school, jobs, volunteer activities, life experiences, or hobbies that would be beneficial to employers. They are skills that emphasize process more than a product.

3 points: In addition, you should clearly discuss how you specifically reflect these skills in your resume or how you plan to adjust your current resume to reflect them. For example, if you believe teamwork is one of your strongest skills and is shown in your ability to work with others, you can talk about a bullet point you have under your job at McDonald’s regarding how you assist coworkers to provide better customer service. Note: “clearly discuss” means more than simply listing skills or stating that they are not reflected in your current resume. This section should be two or three sentences at the end of your assignment.

Communication Skills

A candidate that has good communication skills is essential to employers and graduate schools. Good communication is not just about writing or speaking well. It includes presenting your ideas in an organized and concise manner. It also includes how persuasive, enthusiastic, and engaging you can be. Communication skills involve active listening as well. You could have picked up communication skills through giving lectures or presentations, writing letters or proposals, being a member of a debate team, tutoring a student, and more.

Transferable skill/Core competencies: Speaking to capture attention; Teaching or training

Persuading or debating; Working in a team; Making presentations; Thinking on one’s feet; Providing appropriate feedback; Facilitating discussion; Perceiving non-verbal messages

Written Communication

The ability to develop your ideas in writing is important for most jobs and all graduate programs. Communicating through writing is vastly different than communicating in person, therefore writing must be clear, and concise at the very least. Written communication allows for more fluent and graceful use of language which is a highly sought-after skill.

Transferable skill/Core competencies: Writing for appropriate audience; Using graceful language; Writing with fluency and clarity; Incorporating original metaphors; Utilizing appropriate style; Utilizing reliable sources; Editing; Proof-reading


Employers and graduate schools want to know that you can focus, prioritize work, and finish tasks on time. The more organized you can be, the more efficient you are at the work you do. Organization skills can be picked up in several ways; planning events, stocking and organizing products, or creating schedules, to name a few.

Transferable skill/Core competencies: Meeting deadlines; Multi-tasking; Coordinating tasks; Setting priorities; Setting and keeping schedules

Quantitative Literacy

Some professions demand a high level of data analysis. While others may not be data heavy, it is still important to be well versed in analyzing data. It is also helpful to be able to take information and arrange it into various graphs or charts. Utilizing this skill can help your boss, co-workers, or professors easily access information visually.

Transferable skill/Core competencies: Explaining mathematical data/charts; Converting information into charts or mathematical forms; Producing accurate and comprehensive calculations; Making judgments based on quantitative analysis of data

Problem Solving/Analytical skills

The ability to solve problems efficiently is a key skill in the workplace. Clients often have problems to solve and many companies gain revenue in solving these problems. Graduate schools also want to see you can tackle problems and provide creative solutions. You may have gained this skill in group projects, service industry jobs, or even in your own home.

Transferable skill/Core competencies: Utilizing cause and effect reasoning; Calculating and comparing; Anticipating problems before they occur; Developing plans; Selecting most appropriate solutions to resolve problems; Decision making; Forming independent conclusions; Testing possible solutions; Comprehending large amounts of data

Critical Thinking

Critical thinking involves researching, analyzing, and looking at different viewpoints before drawing a formal opinion or conclusion. It can be something as simple as checking the sources of an article or as complex as formulating and testing a hypothesis.

Transferable skill/Core competencies:

Explaining issues; Critically examining/exploring problems; Questioning various viewpoints on one issue; Stating position on an issue; Acknowledging limits and complexities of viewpoint

Creative Thinking

Creative thinking involves curiosity and innovation. Many people believe creativity mostly relates to art, but creative thinking also involves assessing problems and finding fresh and innovative strategies to solve those problems. Graduate programs are looking for students with new, exciting ideas and a unique outlook on the future.

Transferable skill/Core competencies:

Considering alternative directions or methods; Embracing contradictions; Exploring controversial topics; Working outside the boundaries of an assignment or project; Utilizing unique or novel ideas; Organizing in a visually appealing way


It is important now more than ever to be flexible. New technologies are making it possible to work on multiple projects and tasks at once. However, technologies can fail, and projects can become complicated. Employers want to know you can handle change and make appropriate adaptations.

Transferable skill/Core competencies:

Adapting to change; Open-minded to new ideas; Facilitating change to new rules/environments


Often there will not be a supervisor constantly telling you what your next task should be. Employers value someone that recognizes a task that needs done and begins working on it. Professors also value students that bring new ideas to a class and can implement those ideas on their own.

Transferable skill/Core competencies:

Anticipating problems; Brainstorming new ideas; Improvising; Anticipating consequences of actions; Creating ideas; Anticipating needs of others


Leadership skills are also highly sought after. Being a good leader demonstrates an ability to work with people, accomplish goals, and critical thinking. When speaking about your role as a leader, focus on what your team accomplished under your leadership. You could have picked up leadership skills in a campus club, sports team, internship, or group project.

Transferable skill/Core competencies:

Motivating colleagues; Delegating tasks; Receptiveness to new ideas; Teaching

Setting priorities; Resolving conflicts; Assuming responsibility; Facilitating discussion


Teamwork is invaluable in the workplace and graduate school. Employers want to know they can rely on you to work with people in achieving a common goal. You should be able to communicate your role within a group, as well as how you helped to achieve set goals. This skill appears in many experiences such as volunteer work, student organizations, sports teams, performances, projects and more.

Listening and offering opinions; Working to attain goals; Sharing responsibilities; Willingness to accomplish delegated tasks; Working with others; Assisting team members; Ability to lead when appropriate; Ability to support when appropriate

Human Relations

The ability to form good relationships with people is valuable in all aspects of your life; however, it is a key ability in the workplace. Having good human relations means you can influence people in positive ways, recover gracefully from setbacks, and promote harmony and efficiency in your work environment.

Transferable skill/Core competencies:

Creating positive, hospitable environment; Utilizing appropriate humor; Communicating with diverse groups; Expressing feelings appropriately; Listening and being empathetic

Ethical Reasoning

While it is not appropriate to speak at length about your ethical views in the office, employers want to know that their employees have good ethics. Professors in graduate programs may instigate an ethical discussion. It is helpful to know how to solve problems but solving problems unethically will not help your company nor will it help fellow classmates. Ethical reasoning helps facilitate empathy, self-awareness, and fair solutions.

Transferable skill/Core competencies:

Analysis of core beliefs; Analysis of origin of beliefs; Understanding of other ethical perspectives; Recognition of complex, multi-layered ethical issues; Consideration of implications applying ethical solutions

Local Community Skills

Considering your role in the community; Assisting others in the local community;

Connecting learning to the local community; Generating ideas that benefit the community;

Listening and adapting to others’ ideas

Global Connections

More and more domestic companies are becoming global entities. Now more than ever it is important to be well informed on global issues and have the skills to work with diverse clientele or coworkers. You can pick up global learning skills in foreign language classes, study abroad programs, and much more.

Transferable skill/Core competencies:

Assessing cultural differences and similarities; Understanding local global cause and effect;

Connecting or extending experiences to different cultures or countries; Utilizing diverse perspectives; Adapting to new world views; Using problem solving skills for global issues;
