Today’s executives are increasingly sought-after based on transferable
skills as opposed to industry-specific experience. Executives can easily
move from heading the sales department of a major discount retailer to
heading the operations of the state lottery. Another executive might
move from a prominent position at an employee search firm to one at a
manufacturing company. Each time this happens they are proving that
transferable skills are more important than industry-specific skills.
A survey taken by ExecuNet of Norwalk, Conn., asked recruiters at
search firms to name the top transferable skills they look for when
trying to fill an opening. What they reveal are key attributes they seek in
a candidate regardless of the specific industry. Someone strong in one or
more of these skills will be able to excel in other jobs where direct
technical knowledge is not a requirement for the specific position.
