Identifying how skills transfer from one job to another can be a difficult task. As a workforce development professional, you are encountering clients who want a change of career—possibly a stay-at-home parent wanting to rejoin the workforce or someone seeking help from a company-wide layoff.
Individuals, and companies, often need assistance in identifying where skills best line up within the workforce.
Luckily Emsi has an easy-to-use report that can help you identify transferable skills to guide jobseekers on available jobs, training opportunities, and their pathway to a lasting career.
